Israel opens fire at unarmed fishermen in Gaza

Israeli gunboats have targeted Palestinian fishing boats off the northwestern coast of the besieged Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime’s aggression against Palestinians continues unabated.
One of the Palestinian fishermen said Israeli forces fired at the boats near al-Sudaniyya neighborhood, northwest of Gaza City, on Tuesday morning, causing excessive damage. There were no reports of casualties.
Israeli army has been targeting several areas in Gaza, launching air raids and bombing buildings, in the past couple of weeks.
Palestinian boats are permitted to fish up to six nautical miles from the Gaza coast according to the terms of Israel’s naval blockade on the impoverished enclave.
The fishing area was extended to six nautical miles from three on November 21, 2012, in the truce deal that ended an eight-day Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip.
Gaza has been blockaded since June 2007, an act which has caused a decline in the standard of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
The apartheid regime of Israel denies about 1.7 million people in Gaza their basic rights, such as freedom of movement, jobs that pay proper wages and adequate healthcare and education.
