Israeli Navy Opens Fire At Palestinian Boats In Northern Gaza

Israeli navy ships fired, on Monday morning, dozens of live rounds, and used water cannons, targeting Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the navy attacked the boats while fishing less than three nautical miles from the shore.

They added that the attack did not lead to casualties, but caused damage and forced the fishermen back to the shore without being able to fish to provide for their families.

The Oslo Accords signed by Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization in 1993, and 1995 stipulated that the Israeli occupation authorities must allow Palestinian fishermen to sail and fish up to 20 nautical miles off the coast.

However, Israel keeps unilaterally changing the allotted miles, and constantly attacks the fishermen near the shore, leading to dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to arrests, excessive damage, and the confiscation of boats.
