Israeli navy ships fired, on Thursday morning, several rounds of live ammunition at Palestinian fishing boats near the shore on Gaza city, while Israeli soldiers also targeted farmers with live fire east of Khan Younis.

Eyewitnesses said the Israeli navy shops chased a few Palestinian fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area, northwest of Gaza city, and opened fire at them.

They added that the attack caused damage and forced the fishers to leave, fearing additional violations.

In addition, Israeli soldiers fired many live rounds into Palestinian farmlands, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the coastal region.

The attack took place on Palestinian lands in Khuza’a town, east of Khan Younus, and did not lead to casualties but forced the farmers to leave.

On Monday, the navy attacked several fishing boats in the Sudaniyya Sea area northwest of Gaza city detained seven fishermen, including siblings, and confiscated their boats.

The attacks are part of frequent Israeli violations against the Palestinians, especially the fishermen, farmers, shepherds, and workers in the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip, and resulted in dozens of casualties, including fatalities, in addition to severe property damage and the confiscation of many boats after abducting the fishermen.

In March of last year, 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
