Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli warships opened Thursday at dawn fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the  northern Gaza coast.

Witnesses said that occupation gunships fired the fishermen and their boats off al-Soudaniya coast, no injuries were reported. 

Israeli boats also opened fire Wednesday at evening at fishermen's boats off Rafah coast.

In 2013, the IOF carried out 147 attacks against fishermen, injuring 10, arresting 22, confiscating 9 boats, and destroying extensive amounts of fishing equipment.

The Israeli occupation regularly attack Gazan fishermen's boats in the context of Israel’s closure of the Gaza Strip, including 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.
