A number of Israeli navy ships attacked, on Friday at dawn, a number of Palestinian fishing boats in Deir al-Balah sea, in central Gaza, and the Sudaniyya area, in the northern part of the coastal region.

Eyewitnesses said the navy ships attacked the Palestinian fishing boats, and fired many live rounds at them, causing damage.

The fishers had to sail back to shore in fear of additional navy fire and escalation; no injuries were reported in the two attacks.

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