Palestine: IOF targets Palestinians Fishermen, Farmers
04 February 2017

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Saturday morning opened fire at Palestinian fishermen and farmers in Gaza Strip.Â

According to local sources, Israeli forces stationed along the eastern border of Gaza opened their machinegun fire at Palestinian farmers.

No injuries were reported during the shooting attack.

Meanwhile, Israeli war boats opened fire at a number of Palestinian fishing boats off the shores of Gaza.Â

The fishermen were forced to return ashore. Luckily, no one was injured in the assault.Â

Under an inhumane siege, the Israeli army keeps attacking, injuring and killing civilians, farmers and fishermen almost on a daily basis, without any shred of respect for the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal in Gaza or even the international law.
