Israeli forces attacked, on Wednesday, Palestinian farmers and fishermen, in the besieged Gaza Strip, injuring one fisherman, according to local sources.

Off the northern coast of the Gaza Strip, the Israeli Navy fired rubber-coated steel rounds at fishing boats, causing a moderate injury to one Palestinian fisherman, according to Muhammad Bakr, with the Gaza Fishermen’s Syndicate.

Meanwhile, in the southern part of Gaza, Israeli soldiers opened fire at Palestinian farmers while they tended to their lands, east of Khan Younis.

Media sources said that soldiers fired live round and tear gas canisters at farmers in the town of al-Fukhkhari, near the eastern border with Israel.

There were no reports of injuries, however the farmers were forced to leave their agricultural lands, which is their only source of income.

On a regular basis, the occupation Navy shoots at, harasses, and abducts Palestinian fishermen, in addition to confiscating and/or damaging their boats.

The Gaza Strip, a tiny coastal enclave, isolated from the West Bank, has been under a brutal Israeli blockade of the air, land, and sea, for the past sixteen years.

More than two million people live in Gaza with limited fresh water and electricity, in addition to a high rate of unemployment and poverty.

"The Gaza Strip is the scene of a humanitarian crisis that has nothing to do with natural causes; it is entirely man-made, a direct result of official Israeli policy." – B’Tselem
