Several Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Friday morning, on a number of Palestinian fishing boats, in Gaza territorial waters, in Beit Lahia and Sudaniyya, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, and in Rafah, in its southern part.

The fishers said the soldiers fired dozens of live rounds at, and around, the boats, in the Sudaniyya Sea area and Beit Lahia, causing damage, and forcing them back to shore.

In Rafah, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, the soldiers fired live rounds in a number of boats, in addition to firing a few shells along the shore, causing property damage.

The attacks were carried out as military helicopters flew overhead, and above various parts of the coastal region.
