The Israeli occupation forces attacked on Wednesday morning the fishermen's boats in Gaza City, opening water hoses at the fishermen's boats.
Local sources reported that the occupation navy boats fired and opened water hoses at the fishermen's boats, which are 6 nautical miles off the sea of Gaza city, which resulted in damage to at least a fishing boat, but no injuries were reported among the fishermen, who had to leave to the seashore.
Fishing is considered one of the most important jobs in which Gazans work. According to the Palestinian Fishermen’s Syndicate, about 4 thousand fishermen in the Strip, who support more than 50,000 individuals, work in this activity.
The fishing profession declined in an unprecedented way, during the years of the siege, as a result of the decrease in the daily fishing volume, due to the restrictions imposed by the Israeli occupation on the areas in which they are allowed to fish.
