On Sunday, Israeli navy ships attacked several Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of Rafah in the southern part of the coastal region.
Media sources said the navy ships fired sporadic rounds of live ammunition at the fishing boats and used water cannons to force them to leave.
The attack did not lead to casualties but caused damage and forced the fishing boats to leave in fear of further violations.
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.
