Gaza fishermen forced by Israeli forces to leave sea and farmers to leave their lands

GAZA, Israeli navy today opened fire at Palestinian fishermen in the sea opposite the northern Gaza shore, while soldiers targeted farmers working in their lands to the south of the Gaza Strip, reported WAFA correspondent.
He said that the Israeli navy opened fire at the fishermen’s boats as they were sailing three nautical miles in the Sudaniya coast, northwest of the city of Gaza, forcing them to leave the area and return to shore to avoid being hit or their boats damaged.
Israeli forces stationed at military sites behind the borderline to the east of the city of Khan Younis, opened fire towards farmers as they were plowing their lands, and shepherds as well.
No casualties were reported, however.
Israeli occupation forces target Gaza fishermen, farmers and shepherds on daily basis.
