Gaza: Israeli navy kidnap fishermen, confiscate their boats

PNN/ Gaza/

The Israeli naval forces on Monday morning kidnapped two Palestinian fishermen off the northern shores of the Gaza Strip.

Local sources in Gaza told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that Israeli gunboats intensively opened machinegun fire at fishermen aboard their boat and destroyed it, then confiscated the boat and rounded up two fishermen.

The fishermen are believed to have been taken to an Israeli port.

The Israeli navy recently escalated its violations against Gaza fishermen and targeted many of them as they were working within the permitted fishing zone.
