Israeli navy attacks Palestinian fishermen in Gaza waters, forces them to leave the sea

Israeli navy today attacked Palestinian fishermen sailing offshore in the north of the Gaza Strip and forced them to return to the coast, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said the navy opened fire in the direction of the fishermen and opened the water hoses at two boats and almost caused one to capsize while they were within the allowed three nautical miles.

Israel imposes a general air, sea, and land blockade on the Gaza Strip since 2005 and restricts the movement of Gazans.
