Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Thursday at dawn, on a number of Palestinian fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters, in the northern part of the coastal region, and kidnapped one fisherman.

The Palestinian Fishers Syndicate said one fisher, identified as Abdul-Aziz Sa’dallah, was kidnapped from his boat in Beit Lahia Sea, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

The fisher was in his boat less than one nautical mile from the shore; his boats was partially damaged by the navy fire.

According to the Safa News Agency, the navy also attempted to kidnap another fisher, who was on the same boat, but armed resistance fighters opened fire at the navy ships, forcing them away from the shore, and preventing them from confiscating the boat.
