The Israeli army and the navy fired, Wednesday, many live rounds at Palestinian farmers and fishermen in the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the soldiers, stationed in military towers and behind sand mounds across the perimeter fence east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, fired sporadic rounds of live fire at the farmers.

They added that the farmers, working on their lands in the al-Fakhari area, east of Khan Younis, had to leave their lands in fear of further violations.

In related news, Israeli navy ships fired live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats only three nautical miles from the shore of the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Gaza city.

The attack caused damage to at least one boat and forced the fishermen to sail back to the shore without being able to fish to provide for their families.

It is worth mentioning that the army frequently attacks farmersshepherds, workers, and fishermen across the eastern parts of the coastal region and in Palestinian territorial waters, leading to dozens of casualties,  including fatalities, in addition to preventing the Palestinians from tending to their lands and from fishing to provide for their families.

In March of this year, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
