Israeli occupation opens fire at Palestinian fishermen, farmers in Gaza

Feb 09,2021

Israeli occupation forces carry out such attacks against Palestinians almost every day.

Israeli occupation navy opened fire on Monday at Palestinian fishermen sailing off Gaza shore as its armoured vehicles infiltrated the northern Gaza border, security sources reported.

The sources said that the fishermen were sailing within six nautical miles when Israeli naval boats opened gunfire and water hoses toward them, causing significant damage to at least three fishing boats.

Israeli naval boats also fired several bursts of machine gunfire on other fishing boats and attempted to sink them.

Meanwhile, a number of Israeli military vehicles and bulldozers infiltrated the Gaza border, north of Beit Lahya town in the north of the besieged enclave.

The Israeli bulldozers razed large swathes of farmland and placing earth mounds as they intermittently opened fire, the sources said, in order to prevent the Palestinian farmers from reaching their farms and lands near the border.
