GAZA, (PIC)– The fisheries department at the ministry of agriculture said on Monday that the Israeli navy boats intercepted Palestinian fishing boats and arrested four fishermen off the coast of Gaza.

The ministry’s statement said that Israeli gunboats intercepted two fishing boats one off the Gaza harbor and the second off the northern coast while fishing at a distance of two nautical miles.

It said that the Israeli navy detained the fishermen and their boats, and held the Israeli occupation authority responsible for their lives.

The ministry asked the world community to adopt daring stands against the Israeli constant harassment of Palestinian fishermen and to protect them in face of such practices.
