Israeli Army opens fire on farmers and fishers In Gaza

12:00 May 7 2015 area east of Deir al+Balah; and Gaza's territorial waters

by IMEMC News

Israeli soldiers opened fire, on Thursday at dawn, on a number of Palestinian farmers east of Deir al-Balah, in Central Gaza, while navy ships opened fire on fishing boats in Gaza territorial waters.

Media sources said the soldiers fired dozens of rounds of live ammunition into Palestinian agricultural lands, south of Deir al-Balah, forcing the farmers to leave their lands fearing addition military escalation.

The sources stated that the live rounds were fired from military towers, surrounding the Kissufim base, across the border fence with Gaza.

In addition, Israeli navy ships fired rounds of live ammunition targeting a number of fishing boats, in Palestinian territorial waters.

One of the boats was damaged nearly 4 miles from the Gaza coast, and the fishers had to swim back to shore, to avoid further navy fire.

The Israeli army and navy conduct daily assaults and violations against the Palestinians, their lands and property in different parts of the besieged coastal region.
