Israel on a piracy mission
Gaza , April 6, 2009 (Pal Telegraph) - In a new piracy mission the Israeli Occupation arrested eight fishermen and confiscated their boats off the Gaza shore.
The Palestine Telegraph reporter was informed that Israeli gunboats intercepted five Palestinian boats while fishing in the northern Gaza strip. The Israeli forces seized the boats and arrested eight fishermen who were on board.

Elsewhere, a group of Palestinian resistance fighters survived an Israeli bombing that targeted the American school near Beit Lahia in the northern part of Gaza. Occupation aircrafts are still flying intensely over different parts of the strip.
