Israeli navy ships attacked, on Saturday at noon, a number of Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Gaza city, and abducted three fishermen.

Media sources said the navy fired many live rounds at the fishing boats in an area that is less than six nautical miles of the shore, before abducting the three fishermen.

They added that the abducted fishermen have been identified as Omar Bakr, Mansour Bakr and Atef Bakr.

The attack is part of ongoing Israeli violations against the fishermen in Palestinian territorial waters, in addition to farmers and workers on their lands near the perimeter fence along the eastern parts of the besieged and improvised coastal region.
