Gaza, ALRAY- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) opened fire on Sunday morning at fishermen and their boats in al-Sudaniya sea northern the Gaza Strip.

Local sources said that Israeli boats opened fire towards the fishing boats sailing three miles west of Al-Sudaniya.  One of fisherman slightly injured with a rubber bullet.
The sources added that Israeli navy boats expatiated 15 fishing nets of the fisherman Mahmoud Abu Riala's boat.

The Israeli occupation forces routinely attack Gazan fishermen and their fishing boats in the context of Israel’s closure of the Gaza Strip, which includes restrictions on the Gaza fishing zone that deprives members of the fishing community of their right to work and puts fishermen’s life and wellbeing at serious risk.


The attacks include violations on the right to livelihood, harassment and shooting, arbitrary arrest and detention that involves abuse, and confiscation of property including fishing boats and nets. The IOF use cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment during fishermen arrests. In 2013, the IOF carried out 147 attacks against fishermen, injuring 10, arresting 22, confiscating 9 boats, and destroying extensive amounts of fishing equipment.
