Israeli Navy Crimes
Israeli navy shoots Gaza fishermen, wounds one
The Israeli occupation navy targeted on Thursday morning a Palestinian fisherman off the coast of As_Sudaniya, northwest of Gaza city, injuring one, local sources reported.
According to sources, the fishermen were within six nautical miles of the occupation when Israeli naval boats opened fire on them, hurting one of them in his foot and causing the others to run for safety.
The victim was transported to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed him with a serious injury.
Israel has not fully withdrew from Gaza fourteen years after its so-called "disengagement"; it still controls its land borders, access to the sea, and airspace.
The Gaza Strip, home to two million Palestinians, has been subjected to a punitive and crippling Israeli embargo for the past 12 years, as well as numerous onslaughts that have severely harmed most of the enclave's infrastructure.
Gaza's 2-million people are still living under occupation and a strict siege that has destroyed the local economy, strangled Palestinian livelihoods, thrown them into unprecedented unemployment and poverty, and cut them off from the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories and the rest of the world.
Gaza is still under occupation, with no authority over its borders, territorial waters, or airspace. Meanwhile, Israel fulfills only a small portion of its responsibilities as an occupying authority, failing to meet the fundamental necessities of Palestinian civilians in the land.
