Israeli Navy Ships Harass Palestinian Fisherman off Gaza Coast

Israeli naval forces reportedly harassed, earlier on Tuesday morning, flooding with water, the boats of Palestinian fishermen, off the coast of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Local media sources in the coastal territory said that Israeli naval vessels intercepted some fishing boats, in the northwestern area of Sudaniya, forcing them all to leave, with no casualties reported.

Israeli harassment of fishermen occur almost on daily basis, and since 2007 when the occupation enforced a marine blockade on the Strip, fishermen are severely limited in their ability to make a living.

Concerned bodies have so far documented many deaths, injuries and abductions among fishermen, as well as sabotage of hundreds of fishing boats, along the shores of the besieged coastal enclave.

In the meantime, for the second day in row, Israeli armored vehicles and bulldozers invaded the Mallaka area, east of Gaza city and began razing Palestinian farm lands, nearby with the troops opening fire.

No causalities were reported.
