Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli occupation forces(IOF) Monday evening opened fire towards the Palestinian farmlands and houses near the site of Kisufime, east of Khanyounis.
ALRAY correspondent said that the area witnessed active movements of the occupation jeeps centered on the other side of the border where they shot bullets and stun grenades in the place.
In the same context, Israeli naval forces opened fire towards Palestinian fishermen at the coast of Rafah city in the south of Gaza.
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.
