Israeli occupation forces opened  fire on Monday at Palestinian fishermen and farmers in the Gaza Strip, according to local sources.

It stated that the Israeli navy attacked Palestinian fishermen and their fishing boats as they were sailing three nautical miles into al-Sudaniya area, northwest of the Gaza city, and opened water hoses at them, forcing them to return to shore.

While, Israeli forces opened fire at a group of farmers as they were working in their lands in al-Zaytouna neighborhood, southeast of Gaza city, and forced them to leave their lands.

No injures were reported.

Despite negotiated agreements between Palestinians and Israel allowing fishermen to travel 12 nautical miles inside the Mediterranean Sea, the Israeli navy regularly targets Gaza fishermen and only allows them to travel three nautical miles, which the fishermen claim is insufficient for catching fish.

 

Because of Israel's ten-year siege of the Gaza Strip, a substantial number of Gazans rely on fishing for their daily needs.

 

The Israeli occupation also fires on Gaza farmers working on their properties near the Gaza-Israel border barrier on a regular basis in order to keep them out of that region.
