GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli navy gunboats opened heavy machinegun fire at Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of Khan Younis to the south of Gaza Strip on Monday morning.

Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that the gunboats targeted Palestinian fishing boats at sea but no casualties or damage were reported.

Fishermen in Gaza are frequently targeted by the Israeli navy forces that fire at them and at their fishing boats. Many of them were injured, their boats damaged or their tools and boats confiscated.
