Israeli Gunboats Open Fire at Palestinian Fishing Boats and Arrest Two

Al Mezan


At approximately 10:30 am on Tuesday 19 February 2013, Israeli naval vessels patrolling the Gaza sea opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats off the coast northwest of Al Waha resort—near the maritime border—west of Beit Lahiya, North Gaza district.
In their affidavits to Al Mezan, one of the fishermen stated that a big Israeli boat and two inflatable boats surrounded one Palestinian fishing boat, opened fire, and then forced two fishermen to take off their clothes and swim towards them. The IOF confiscated the boat and arrested Mahmoud Mousa Sa’adallah and Mohammed Shehda Sa’adallah (23 and 50 respectively). They were about 400 one nautical mile way from the coastline and about 400 meters away from the illuminated buoys which form a line demarcating the no-go zone for Palestinian fishermen.
