Israeli navy ships fired, Saturday, many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the fishing boats were sailing less than three nautical miles from Khan Younis shore when the navy attacked them.

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

The attack is 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.
