Israeli navy ships attacked, Saturday, several Palestinian fishing boats with live ammunition off the shore of Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the navy fired live ammunition at the boats, sailing less than six nautical miles from the shore near Rafah.

The attack did not lead to casualties but forced the Palestinians to leave to the shore in fear of additional Israeli escalation.

On Friday morning, Israeli soldiers fired many gas bombs at Palestinian farmers and bird hunters east of Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

On Thursday, the soldiers abducted two Palestinian farmers east of Khan Younis.

The army frequently attacks farmersshepherds, workers, and fishermen across the eastern parts of the coastal region and in Palestinian territorial waters, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to preventing the Palestinians from tending to their lands and from fishing to provide for their families.

In March of 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.

In related news, the soldiers shot a young Palestinian man in Deir Jarir village, east of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.
