Gaza (QNN)- The Israeli navy on Friday opened fire at fishermen of the Beit Lahya shore, wounding two fishermen.
Zakariyyah Baker, who heads Gaza’s fishermen’s union, said Israeli gunboats opened fire at fishing boats off the shore of Beit Lahya while they were fishing within the small space allowed by the Israelis. Two fishermen were reportedly wounded.
He also told QNN that one of the fishermen was wounded in his hand while the other in his leg.
The Israeli navy deliberately targets fishing boats on a daily basis, preventing nearly 3600 fishermen from earning living. The Israelis open fire, use water cannons, and damage fishing nets and boats’ engines in their efforts to terrorize fishermen.
