Israeli gunboats open fire at Gaza fishermen

Gaza14June6GAZA (PNIC):-Israeli navy ships on Sunday morning opened machinegun fire on Palestinian fishermen off Gaza’s northern seashore.

Eye-witnesses said Israeli gunboats unleashed heavy barrages of machinegun fire on Gaza fishermen, forcing them to go ashore for fear of being killed in the assault.

Israeli navy targets Gaza fishermen almost on a daily basis, in a blatant breach of a ceasefire agreement struck between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian resistance groups in august 2014, following 51 days of bloody Israeli aggressions on the besieged Gaza Strip, which claimed the lives of over 2.200 Palestinians, among them children.

Under the 1993 Oslo accords, Palestinian fishermen are permitted to fish up to 20 nautical miles off the coast of Gaza, but since then Israel has kept reducing the fishing area gradually to a limit of three nautical miles as part of its blockade on Gaza.
