According to a statement made to PCHR by Ahmed Imsa’il al-Sherafi, 18, from al-Shati refugee camp in Gaza City, Israeli naval troops arrested 6 fishermen while they were fishing nearly 2 nautical miles off the Gaza seashore at about 09:30 on Sunday, 29 April 2012. The troops fired at the fishing boat and forced the fishermen to take their clothes off and swim towards an Israeli gunboat.
