GAZA, (PIC)– Israeli navy forces attacked the international boat, Oliva, run by human rights activists to monitor Israeli violations against Palestinian fishermen, on Wednesday inflicting damage to it.

Sources in the marine police told the PIC reporter that the Israeli navy chased the boat then attacked it, adding that several international activists were onboard.

The navy used water cannons against the boat causing damage to its engine, they said, adding that the activists boarded a fishing boat to return to Gaza while Oliva was towed to shore by another boat.

The boat started to accompany Palestinian fishing boats and fishermen, subject to constant violations and attacks by the Israeli navy, several weeks ago to protect Palestinian fishermen and monitor Israeli violations against them.
