On Tuesday morning, Israeli navy ships fired many rounds of live fire at Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, west of Gaza city, in the besieged coastal region.
One of the fishermen said the boats were only three nautical miles from the shore when the Israeli navy attacked them with live and forced them to leave.
Media sources in Gaza said the attack, which took place near the Fishermen’s Port in the Sudaniyya area, caused damage to the attack boats but did not lead to casualties.
Two weeks ago, the navy abducted seven Palestinian fishermen after attacking their boats in the same area.
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.
On Tuesday at dawn, Palestinian medical sources have confirmed that Shadi Najm, 18, died from serious wounds he suffered on Monday night after the soldiers shot him with live rounds in Jenin city. His death came just hours after the soldiers killed Abdullah al-Hosary, 22, In Jenin.
