IOF Opens Fire and Pursues Palestinian Fishermen off North Gaza Coast


At approximately 9:00 am on Tuesday 20 December 2011, Israeli gunboats opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats which were in the waters off the coast north of Al Waha resort, in the As-Sudaniya area, in the west of Beit Lahiya, North Gaza district.  No casualties or injuries were reported.  The firing lasted for about 30 minutes, during which the Israeli boats pursued the fishermen, forcing them to leave the area.  This pattern of intimidation was repeated several times, with the Israeli boats opening fire on the fishermen each time they reached an area about 2000 meters away from the northern separation fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel.
