Israeli navy ships opened fire, Wednesday, targeting fishers in Palestinian waters, northwest of Gaza city, while the soldiers opened fire on shepherds and farmers, in different parts of the coastal region.

The navy ships fired many live rounds on Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Gaza city.

Many Palestinian boats were hit by navy fire, causing damage, and pushing the fishers to sail back to shore, fearing additional escalation.

In addition, soldiers stationed across the border fence, fired many live rounds of farmers and shepherds, in Palestinian lands, along the border fence, east of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers in Sofa military base, northeast of Rafah in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, opened fire on the fishers and farmers in the area, forcing them away.

The soldiers also opened fire of farmers east of Abasan al-Kabeera town, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

A similar attack took place east of the al-Qarara town, northeast of Khan Younis, Deir al-Balah and east of the al-Maghazi refugee camp, in central Gaza, targeting farmers and shepherds.

The attacks did not lead to casualties, but forced the Palestinians to leave the attacked areas, in fear of additional military escalation.

The Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip face ongoing violations in different parts of the coastal region.
