Gaza, ALRAY - A palestinian fishermen was subjected Sunday to Egyptian firing while sailing near the Egyptian territorial waters off the Rafah coast in southern Gaza Strip.
Local media reported that "a boat of Egyptian naval police fired at and chased the Palestinian boat until the later managed to get away from the territory."
The crackdown operations carried out by the Egyptian military against allegedly "terrotist groups" in Sinai Peninsula are still in place.
This attack against a Gaza fisherman is not the first of its kind. The few earlier weeks saw the arrest and trial of five fishermen by Egypt, which drew human rights groups' disapproval.
