Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli gunboats opened fire Sunday morning on Palestinian fishermen off Gaza coast near al-Sodania area to the north of Gaza.

ALRAY correspondent reported that the Israeli navy forces fired shells on Palestinian boats, no injuries reported.

The Israeli occupation fired Palestinian fishermen on daily basis, preventing them from practicing their job

In May 2013, the Israeli government re-extended Gaza's fishing zone to six miles.

The zone had been extended to six miles as part of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that ended an eight-day offensive by Israel in November.

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.
