Earlier Friday morning, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats with live fire and gas bombs near the shores of the northern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Media sources said the navy attacked the boats with live fire and high-velocity gas bombs near the shores of Al-Waha, As-Sundaiyya, and Beit Lahia.
They added that the navy used water cannons to attack the boats and chased them to the shore. The attacks led to damage but did not result in injuries.
Late on Thursday night, the navy attacked Palestinian fishing boats with live fire and gas bombs and fired many flares, forcing the fishermen to leave.
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 led to the death of three fishermen.
