Gaza fishermen come under Israeli fire

Gaza - Ma’an - Gazan fishing boats in the As-Sudaniyah and Al-Wusta areas of the Gaza coast came under fire Friday morning as Israeli warships patrolling the waters launched an attack.

Witnesses reported seeing sporadic attacks on boats in the area since sunrise, with shells heard all along the coast.

While no injuries have been reported, intense explosions caused streets to empty and citizens to take shelter in their homes.
