On Monday morning, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats near the shores of Rafah before abducting four fishermen.

Media sources said the navy ships chased the ship near the Rafah shore and attacked them with water cannons and live rounds.

They added that the navy abducted four fishermen and confiscated two fishing boats before taking them to Ashdod Port.

The attacks forced many fishermen to sail back to the shore without being able to fish to provide for their families.

The attacks are part of constant Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermenfarmersshepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.

In March of 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that killed three fishermen.
