Israeli navy ships attacked, on Monday evening, a number of Palestinian fishing boats, in Palestinian territorial water in Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, and kidnapped five fishers.

Eyewitnesses said the navy fired many live rounds at the boats and kidnapped Fadi Mahmoud Bakr, Ehab Jawad Bakr, Mamdouh No’man Bakr, Wael Nabil Bakr and Khamis Ziad Meenawi.

The five were all fishing in the same boat; the navy also confiscated their boat and took it to Ashdod Port.

On Friday, August 12th, the navy attacked fishing boats and kidnapped five fishers identified as Saed Jom’a Bakr, Mahmoud Saed Bakr, Ibrahim Saed Bakr, Yasser Nasser Bakr and Ahmad Mahmoud al-Louh.
