Israeli navy ships fired, on Sunday morning, several rounds of live ammunition at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the besieged coastal region.

The Palestinian Fishermen’s Syndicate said the Israeli navy fired live rounds at the Palestinian fishing boats while sailing less than three nautical miles from the shore in Beit Lahia.

The attack did not lead to casualties but forced the fishermen back to the shore in fear of further Israeli violations.

The Israeli navy carries out frequent attacks against the fishermen and their boats, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to abducting many fishermen, damaging and confiscating their boats.
