Israeli navy targets fishermen in Deir al-Balah, Khan Yunis

La marine "israélienne" cible les pêcheurs de Deir al-Balah, Khan Yunis

Gaza, ALRAY - Israeli occupation gunboats targeted last night fishing boats off Khan Younis and Deir al-Balah shores in the south and central Gaza Strip with heavy machine guns.

According to local sources, the military boats targeted fishermen's boats while they were fishing at sea, within the allowed fishing distance of 6 nautical miles.

The Israeli occupation forces routinely attack Gazan fishermen and their fishing boats in the context of Israel’s closure of the Gaza Strip, which includes restrictions on the Gaza fishing zone that deprives members of the fishing community of their right to work and puts fishermen’s life and wellbeing at serious risk.

The attacks include violations on the right to livelihood, harassment and shooting, arbitrary arrest and detention that involves abuse, and confiscation of property including fishing boats and nets. The IOF use cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment during fishermen arrests. In 2013, the IOF carried out 147 attacks against fishermen, injuring 10, arresting 22, confiscating 9 boats, and destroying extensive amounts of fishing equipment.
