Gaza14June6GAZA (PNIC):-The Israeli navy on Sunday morning arrested two Palestinian fishermen off Gaza shore.

Head of the Palestinian Fishermen Union in Gaza, Nizar Ayyash, told Quds Press that Israeli gunboats opened fire at Tariq and Ayed al-Sultan while they were fishing off northern Gaza shore before they were arrested.

Targeting Palestinian fishermen in Gaza sea on a daily basis is a crime added to a long series of Israeli violations committed against the Gaza Strip since the signing of the ceasefire agreement between Israel and the Palestinian resistance in August 2014 under the auspices of Egypt.

In 2017, 39 Gazan fishermen were arrested, a number of whom were arrested after being shot by the Israeli navy forces, two were killed and 14 were injured.

The Oslo Agreement signed between the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Israeli occupation on 13th September 1993 allows Palestinian fishermen to sail within a distance of 20 nautical miles off the Gaza Strip shores; however, Israel had reduced the fishing zone to only six nautical miles.
