Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats near the Rafah shore in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip on Saturday dawn.

Eyewitnesses said the navy chased the Palestinian fishing boats and fired many live rounds at them in addition to attacking them with water cannons.

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

On Friday, the Israeli army and the navy attacked Palestinian farmers and fishing boats near Gaza City and Khan Younis in the southern part of the coastal region.

The army frequently attacks farmersshepherds, workers, and fishermen across the eastern parts of the coastal region and in Palestinian territorial waters, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to preventing the Palestinians from tending to their lands and from fishing to provide for their families.

In March of last year, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
