Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Monday evening, at Palestinian fishing boats in Gaza territorial waters, wounding a fisherman and causing damage to several boats.

The Palestinian Fishermen’s Syndicate said the attack took place in the Sudaniyya Sea, northwest of Gaza city.

It stated that the Israeli navy fired many live rounds at Palestinian fishing boats, moderately wounding one fisherman, before he was rushed to a hospital for treatment.

The attack is the latest in ongoing Israeli violations against the Palestinians in the besieged and impoverished coastal region.
