Gaza29Apr8GAZA (PNIC):-Head of the Gaza Fishermen Syndicate, Amjad al-Shrafi, said that the Israeli navy on Monday arrested two Palestinian fishermen off northern Gaza shore, seized their boat, and took them to an unknown destination, according to Wafa.

Shrafi added that the two fishermen, Hasan and Ahmad Miqdad, were injured while being chased by the Israeli navy forces.

Activist Zakaria Baker said that the Israeli navy gunboats on Monday afternoon confiscated Hasan Miqdad's fishing boat and arrested him along with his brother Ahmad off the coast of al-Sudaniyya area in the northern Gaza Strip.

Quds Press reported, quoting Baker, that the attack was accompanied by heavy firing of live bullets.

The Israeli navy's daily targeting of Gazan fishermen has not stopped even after the signing of the Egypt-sponsored ceasefire agreement between the Palestinian resistance and the Israeli occupation on 26th August 2014.

Nearly 125 Palestinian fishermen were arrested in 2016. Three fishermen were detained after being shot. Two fishermen were killed during the same year, one of whom is still missing, and dozens were injured.
