On Friday night, Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats with live rounds and gas bombs near the shore of Rafah, in the southern part of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses said the navy ships, sailing west of Rafah Port, fired a barrage of live rounds and gas bombs at the boats.

They added that the attacks caused damage but did not result in casualties and forced the fishermen to leave to avoid further Israeli violations.

On Tuesday, the Israeli navy ships attacked Palestinian fishing boats, abducted four fishermen, and confiscated two fishing boats in the southern parts of the Gaza Strip. The Egyptian Navy also detained two fishermen.

Earlier Tuesday, Israeli military vehicles, including bulldozers, invaded Palestinian lands near the perimeter fence east of the central district of the besieged Gaza Strip and bulldozed them.

The invasion is the second in the same area since Monday. On the same day, the soldiers attacked Palestinian fishing boats in the Gaza territorial waters near the shores of the northern and southern parts of the coastal region.

Last Saturday dawn, Israeli navy ships attacked many Palestinian fishing boats with live fire, gas bombs, and flares near the shores of Khan Younis and Rafah in the southern parts of the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip.

A week ago, Friday morning, Israeli soldiers fired many live rounds at Palestinian shepherds on lands near the fence, east of Khan Younis, in the southern part of the Gaza Strip.

On Thursday, the soldiers invaded agricultural lands in the central and southern Gaza Strip and bulldozed them.

The invasions came just a day after the Israeli military vehicles invaded Palestinian lands along the eastern parts of the Gaza Strip and attacked farmers near Khan Younis.

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.

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.
