The Israeli navy detained this morning six Palestinian fishermen while at sea in the north of the Gaza Strip, reported WAFA correspondent.

He said the navy first detained four fishermen in al-Waha region and then two more west of Gaza port after seizing and impounding their fishing boats.

Fishing is the main source of income and living for thousands of Gazans.

The impoverished Gaza Strip has been under constant Israeli military siege and blockade since 2005 and the fishing area is heavily restricted to only three nautical miles.
