Israeli navy ships attacked, on Saturday morning, several Palestinian fishing boats with live fire and water cannons, near the shore of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

The navy fired many live rounds at the boats and chased some of them while, using water cannons, in Palestinian territorial waters near the shore.

The fishermen had to return to the shore without being able to fish and provide for their families.

In related news, medical sources said four children were mildly injured, after an explosive which was apparently dropped by the army during an earlier invasion into Palestinian lands, east of Gaza city, detonated near them.
