GAZA, May 16 (KUNA) -- Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats along Gaza shores, Saturday, forcing the fishermen to drop anchor and keep to shore.
Palestinian security sources told KUNA "Israeli boats stationed at sea opened fire on the boats and caused damage to several of them." They added the fishermen were thrown into a panic but there were no reports of injuries.
Israeli boats have escalated such attacks on Palestinian fishing boats of late and the latter are unable to cross the two-mile mark out to sea.(end) mzt.wsa KUNA 161032 May 09NNNN
