SHAFAQNA – Israeli navy ships opened fire, on Sunday morning, on fishing boats in Palestinian territorial waters, in northern Gaza, causing damage to one boat, before the soldiers kidnapped two fishers.
Nizar Ayyash, head of the Palestinian Fishers Syndicate, told the Radio Bethlehem 2000 that the navy kidnapped Hatem Abdul-Rahman Sultan, 33, and Mohammad Amin Sultan, 25, and took them to an unknown destination.

The Israeli navy carries out daily attacks and violations against Palestinian fishers in Gaza territorial waters; the attacks include arrests and confiscation of boats.
The repeated Israeli attacks led to scores of casualties, including several fatalities.
