Gaza: Fishermen protest Israel’s acts of piracy

Hundreds of Palestinian fishermen on Thursday staged a sit-in at the port of Gaza City in protest at Israel’s measures and aggressive practices against them.

The Israeli occupation authority has recently escalated its restrictions on fishing activity in Gaza waters, where it kept attacking fishermen, arresting them, confiscating their boats and equipment, closing the Gaza sea and manipulating the permitted fishing area.

The fishermen demand an end to Israel’s repeated sea closures and its daily attacks on them.

They have called on the international community and its concerned organizations to urgently intervene to provide protection for the fishermen and curb Israel’s acts of piracy against them.
