Israeli navy ships attacked, on Thursday morning, Palestinian fishing boats in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, and abducted two sibling fishermen.

Media sources said the navy attacked the fishing boats in the al-Waha area in Beit Lahia Sea, and abducted Saddam al-Sultan, 24, and his brother Odai, 22.

Local fishermen managed to retrieve the boat of the two siblings, and towed it to the shore, after it was struck by several live rounds fired by the navy.

The navy also fired many live rounds at other fishing boats, forcing the fishermen back to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.
