Under Israel's maritime blockade, Palestinians are forbidden from
fishing more than three nautical miles from the coast.
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's navy fired at Palestinian fishermen off Gaza's coast on Sunday, witnesses said.
No injuries were reported.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said that a fishing boat had deviated from the designated fishing area, and after failing to respond to orders to return, warning shots were fired in the air.
The incident took place in the north west of Gaza, locals said.
Under Israel's maritime blockade, Palestinians are forbidden from fishing more than three nautical miles from the coast.
During the Oslo accords negotiators had agreed on 20 nautical miles of fishing access along Gaza's coastline.Tags:
