GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli navy gunboats attacked Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of northern Gaza Strip on Saturday but no casualties were reported.
A security source and fishermen said that an Israeli gunboat fired at three fishing boats off the Sudaniya area inflicting material damage on them.
They added that other fishing boats retreated from the scene.
Around 3,500 Palestinians in the Strip work in fishing and are routinely harassed by Israeli gunboats.
