On Wednesday night, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds, concussion grenades, and flares at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of Gaza city, forcing them to leave.
Media sources said the navy fired a barrage of live fire at the boats and many flares while the Palestinians were fishing in Palestinian waters not far from the shore, northwest of Gaza city.
They added that the navy also fired concussion grenades and ordered the fishermen to leave in addition to threatening to abduct them and confiscate their boats.
The attacks are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, 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.
