Israeli navy ships attacked, on Tuesday evening, Palestinian fishing boats near Gaza city and fired many live rounds and rubber-coated steel bullets at them, wounding a fisherman.
Eyewitnesses said the navy ships chased many Palestinian fishing boats near the shore of the Sudaniyya Sea, west of Gaza city.
They added that the soldiers fired many rounds of live ammunition and rubber-coated steel bullets, wounding a fisherman.
Medical sources in Gaza said the fisherman, Ahmad Sa’idi, was shot with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the head and suffered mild to moderate wounds.
The attack is part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, 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.
