TEHRAN (IQNA) – Israeli naval forces on Wednesday morning opened fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the southern besieged Gaza Strip.


A reporter with Maan news agency said that the Zionist regime’s naval forces opened fire at Palestinian fishermen as they were working off the coast of Rafah City in the southern Gaza Strip.

Sources added that no injuries were reported.

Several human rights groups reported that since the beginning of 2018, the Israeli navy has carried out more than 230 attacks against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip, including shootings, detentions and confiscation of boats.

Israeli human rights group B'Tselem confirmed that Israel's Gaza closure and "harassment of fishermen" have been "destroying Gaza’s fishing sector," with 95 percent of fishermen living below the poverty line.
