Israeli warships open fire at Gazan fishermen

Gaza, July 23, 2009 (Ramattan) - Israeli gunboats shot at Palestinian fishermen in the northern coast of the Gaza Strip on Thursday morning, Palestinian security sources said.

Sources reported that the Israeli navy opened heavy fire against a number of Gazan fishermen and their boats near Al-Sudaniya neighborhood north of Gaza, no injuries or damages were reported.

The Israeli navy prevents Gazan fishermen to sail more than 3 miles into Gaza regional water, what makes it difficult to find the good fish.

Israeli gunboats frequently open heavy fire at Palestinian fishermen along the coast of Gaza.
