Palestinian fisherman wounded in Israeli navy gunfire

GAZA, (PIC)– A Palestinian fisherman was hit and wounded off the northern Gaza shores on Monday when Israeli navy gunboats opened fire at him, medical sources reported.

They said that the 42-year-old fisherman was fishing in regional waters off Beit Lahia, north of Gaza Strip, when he was hit and taken to hospital where his condition was described as moderate.

Israel’s navy routinely targets Palestinian fishermen at sea while its ground forces target farmers along the Gaza borders in a clear war against sources of living for a major segment of the Palestinian society in the Strip.
