On Saturday dawn, Israeli navy ships attacked several Palestinian fishing boats near the shores of the northern parts of the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the navy ships fired many live rounds, gas bombs, and flares at the boats and chased them to the shore.

They added that the attacks occurred near the shores of Beit Lahia, As-Sudaniyya, and Al-Waha; no injuries were reported.

The attacks are part of constant 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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that killed three fishermen.
