The Israeli Navy abducted, on Monday, four Palestinian fishermen while they were sailing off the coast of Gaza City in the north, and levelled lands east of Khan Younis, in the south, local sources reported.

Navy gunboats surrounded a fishing boat sailing three miles off the Al-Sudaniyya coast, northwest of Gaza City, opened fire at the boat and abducted four fishermen.

The Navy confiscated the fishing boat, and abducted four brothers identified as Haitham, Amjad, Jabr, and Firas Tariq Bakr, and transferred them to the port of Ashdod, inside of Israel.

Meanwhile, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the tiny coastal enclave, at least seven military vehicles, including bulldozers and tanks invaded the agricultural lands of Palestinian citizens.

Occupation machinery infiltrated dozens of meters past the Gaza/Israel “security fence” and levelled farmlands, while firing tear gas canisters, and smoke bombs in the area.
