Gaza, ALRAY - Spokesperson of the Palestinian government in Gaza Ihab Al-Ghusein  called on the Egyptian authorities to look into the sentence issued against the five Palestinian fishermen under the pretext of  illegally crossing into Egypt's territorial waters.

He said in a statement to ALRAY,  this conviction could play an important  role in increasing tension between Egypt and Gaza, noting that what was done yesterday by Egypt is a dangerous action against Palestinians.

Referring to this, he added, his government is contacting the Egyptian side, expressing his surprise at the verdict.

The  Egyptian military court on Wednesday sentenced five Palestinian fishermen to a year in jail accused of  illegally crossing into Egypt's territorial waters and  they also fined 500 Egyptian pounds ($730).
