On Wednesday evening, Israeli navy ships opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats near the shores of the northern parts of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the navy fired many live rounds and gas bombs at the fishing boats in the Sudaniyya and al-Waha areas, in addition to Jabalia and Beit Lahia.

They added that the attacks caused damage but did not lead to casualties and forced the fishermen to leave without being able to fish to provide for their families.

The attacks are part of constant 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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
