Israeli navy ships attacked, Saturday, Palestinian fishing boats sailing less than three nautical miles from the shore northwest of Gaza city, causing damage.

Media sources said the navy attacked the boats in Palestinian waters, less than three nautical miles from the Sudaniyya Shore, northwest of Gaza city, and chased them away.

They added that the attack caused damage and forced the fishermen back to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.

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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
