On Saturday evening, Israeli navy ships fired many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats in the northern and southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the ships attacked the Palestinian fishing boats close to the shore in northern Gaza, forcing them to leave.

The sources added that the navy also attacked fishing boats in Rafah and Khan Younis, causing damage to the fishing nets and forcing the Palestinians to leave.

The attacks are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermenfarmersshepherds, 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 last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
