Israeli navy ships attacked, Wednesday dawn, several Palestinian fishing boats near the Rafah shore, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, abducted six fishermen, and confiscated their boats.

Mesia sources said the navy attacked several fishing boats with live fire and water cannons before abducting six fishermen on two boats.

The abducted fishermen have been identified as Mahmoud Nabil Bardaweel, Mohammad Iseed Bardaweel, Mohammad Ayman Bardaweel, Mohammad Ibrahim Bardaweel, Ibrahim Hweishel Abu Adwan, and Mohammad Is’eid Abu Baten.

The six fishermen and the two boats were taken to an Ashdod Port; the attacks forced the other fishermen to leave the area without being able to fish to provide for their families.

Two days ago, the navy attacked many Palestinian fishing boats in Rafah, abducted three fishermen, and confiscated their boats. The navy also fired live rounds at fishing boats and used water cannons near the shore of Gaza city.

On Saturday afternoon, Israeli soldiers stationed at a guard tower along the border wall between southern Gaza and Israel opened fire with machine guns toward Palestinian shepherds grazing their sheep east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip.

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.
