Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli naval forces opened fire Tuesday morning towards Palestinian fishing boats off  the coast of Khanyounis in southern Gaza.

Dozens of Palestinian boats were targeted but no injuries were reported, according to ALRAY correspondent.

Israeli forces intend to practise unfair measures against Gaza fishermen on a daily basis including  arrests and reduction of the fishing zone.

In the Oslo Accords, Israel agreed to a 20-nautical-mile fishing zone off Gaza's coast but it imposed a 3-mile limit for several years, opening fire at fishermen who strayed further.

Israel has controlled Gaza waters since its occupation of the area in 1967, and has kept several warships stationed off the coast since 2008.
