On Thursday morning, Israeli navy ships attacked with live fire many Palestinian fishing boats near the Rafah shore, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the navy fired a barrage of live fire, in addition to flares and gas bombs, at the boats, forcing them to leave.

They added that the navy chased the boats, sailing and fishing within Palestinian waters near the shore, forcing the fishermen to dock without being able to fish to provide for their families.

The attacks are part of constant 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 2021, the Palestinian Interior Ministry in Gaza said Israeli mines were responsible for an explosion that led to the death of three fishermen.
