Israeli gunships open fire at Palestinian fishermen in N. Gaza

GAZA, July 18 (KUNA) -- Israeli gunships opened fire Saturday at Palestinian fishing boats out at sea, off the coasts of northern Gaza Strip.
Palestinian sources told KUNA that the Israeli gunships were out at sea, and fired several rockets at the fishing boats.
None of the fishermen were hurt in the attack, but two boats were severely damaged, the sources added, noting that the fishermen had to head to shore for safety.
Israel attacks Palestinian fishing boats almost daily, claiming that they exceeded the three-mile fishing area limit. (end) mzt.ema KUNA 181128 Jul 09NNNN
