Israeli navy ships attacked, on Saturday evening, Palestinian fishing boats near the shore in Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the navy ships chased several small Palestinian fishing boats and attacked them with water cannons and a few live rounds.

They added that the attack did not lead to casualties but forced the fishermen back to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.

On Friday, the Israeli navy targeted Palestinian fishermen offshore the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest Gaza city.

The attacks are part of frequent 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 last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
