Israeli navy fires 3 shells at Gazan coast

GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli navy fired a number of shells at Gaza coast near Alwaha area west of Beit Lahia, in the northern Gaza Strip targeting Palestinian houses and agricultural lands on Thursday night.

The Israeli navy fired 3 artillery shells, and opened machinegun fire heavily toward fishermen off Gaza coast, the PIC reporter confirmed.

Israeli gunboats opened heavy fire at the fishing boats working off the Sudaniya shore, North West of Gaza city within the three nautical miles off the Gaza shore in light of the Israeli naval blockade imposed on the Gaza strip.

As part of the ceasefire agreement that ended the Israeli war on Gaza in November 2012, Palestinian fishermen were allowed to fish within six nautical miles off the Gaza coast, but the army continued to attack the fishermen in their allocated areas, and continued its policy of forcing them to fish within 3 nautical miles.
