Israeli navy ships attacked, Tuesday, several Palestinian fishing boats with live rounds only three nautical miles from the shore in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the navy ships fired many live rounds at the boats, in Palestinian waters in the northern part of the coastal region.

The attack did not lead to any casualties but forced the fishermen back to the shore without being able to fish to provide for their families.

It is worth mentioning that, four days ago, Israel unilaterally decreased the fishing zone from ten nautical miles to only five.

In related news, Israeli soldiers abducted a young Palestinian man reportedly after he crossed the perimeter fence in the southern part of the coastal region.
