Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli navy patrols  arrested Thursday at dawn two Gazan fishermen off the northern Gaza shore.

Security sources said the Israeli patrols  arrested Oday al-Sultan,20, and Hammouda Zayed,15, from their boat while fishing. Both reside in al-Salatin neighborhood in Beit Lahia town, north of the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli occupation forces routinely attack Gazan fishermen and their fishing boats which coincided with the  Israel’s closure of the Gaza Strip.    Israel imposes  wide  restrictions on the Gaza fishing zone ,  deprives  Palestinian fishers   from  the right of access to the  fishery resources  , putting  their life at risk.

The attacks include violations of  the right to livelihood, harassment , shooting, arbitrary arrest and detention that involves abuse.  Israel also  confiscated the  Palestinian fishers property such as  fishing boats and nets. The IOF follows cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in arresting fishermen. In 2013, the IOF carried out 147 attacks against fishermen, injuring 10, arresting 22, confiscating 9 boats, and destroying extensive amounts of fishing equipment.
