Palestinians at Gaza border fence (archive image - Wafa)

Israeli soldiers abducted, Friday dawn, three Palestinians on their lands near the perimeter fence east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the Palestinians were working on their lands near the fence, east of Khan Younis, when the soldiers pointed their guns at them and abducted them for “approaching the fence.”

They added that the soldiers threatened to shoot the Palestinians before abducting them, and took them to a military base across the fence, before moving them to an unknown location.

In related news, Israeli navy ships attacked fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters in the central and southern Gaza Strip.

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 last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
