Zionist navy kidnaps two fishermen in southern Gaza
The zionist occupation navy on Thursday kidnapped two fishermen and confiscated their boat off the southern coast of the Gaza Strip.
According to local sources, zionists' gunboats fired live ammunition and water cannons at the fishermen and their boats as they were working off the shore of Rafah last night.
Naval forces aboard the gunboats kidnapped two fishermen after encircling their boat and confiscating it, the sources added.
Zionists' gunboats are around Gaza fishermen almost every day, harassing them, shooting at them, damaging their boats, and making arrests. Sometimes fishermen are injured or killed during gunfire attacks.
Under the so- called 1993 Oslo accords, Palestinian fishermen are permitted to fish up to 20 nautical miles off the coast of Gaza, but since then zionist gangs have kept reducing the fishing area gradually to a limit of three nautical miles as part of its blockade on Gaza.
Fishermen and human rights groups also say that since the 2008-09 war in Gaza, the zionists' gangs have been regularly enforcing a limit even closer to the shore.
