International Middle East Media Center: Israeli gunboats opened fire, Sunday morning, on Palestinian fishermen off the Gaza coast near al-Sodania area, to the north of Gaza.

Al Ray reports that the Israeli navy forces fired shells on Palestinian boats, with no injuries reported.
The Israeli occupation fires at Palestinian fishermen on a daily basis, preventing them from doing their work.
By the Oslo Accords, Israel had agreed to a 20-nautical-mile fishing zone off Gaza’s coast, but imposed a 3-mile limit for several years, opening fire at fishermen who strayed further.
In May 2013, the Israeli government re-extended Gaza’s fishing zone to six miles. The zone had been extended as part of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire which ended an eight-day offensive by Israel, in November.
Israel has controlled Gaza waters since its occupation of the area in 1967, and has kept several warships stationed off the coast since 2008.
