Gaza: IOF arrest 4 fishermen off coast, confiscate their boats

 PNN/ Gaza/
Occupation naval forces arrested four fishermen who were sailing three miles off the coast of Beit Lahiya city, northenr Gaza strip. 

The fishermen were named as Mohammed Zayed and his son Tamer, Tawfiq Al Sultan and Rafat Sultan. The occupation forces seized two boats belonging to the men.

Fishing boats are frequently subjected to continuous targeting by Israeli gunboats, preventing them from fishing freely, in violation of an agreement  between occupation authorities and factions, sponsored by Egypt in the summer of 2014.

Fishermen are allowed to fish in an area of 9 miles, claimed occupation authorities.
