[ 26/04/2009 - 10:40 AM ]

GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli gunboats on Sunday fired a number of shells at the beaches of Gaza city but no casualties or damages were suffered, local sources said.

Israeli gunboats almost daily target Palestinian beaches in Gaza Strip and consistently fire at fishing boats at the pretext of preventing them from fishing at more than three nautical miles.

Israeli gunboats open heavy fire at Gaza coast, no injuries

Gaza, April 26, 2009 (Ramattan) – The Israeli navy opened fire on Sunday morning towards Palestinian fishermen in the northern coast of Gaza Strip, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources added that the Israeli gunboats opened heavy fire, targeting the Gazan fishermen and their boats near Al-Sudaniya neighborhood north of Gaza, no injuries were reported.

After Israel's 23-day offensive against Gaza three months ago, the Israeli gunboats frequently target the Gazan fishermen along the shore of Gaza.

The Israeli navy imposes tightened measures on the Palestinian fishermen and prevents them to sail more than 3 miles into Gaza regional water, what makes it difficult to find the good fish.
