PCHR Condemns Continued Attacks Against Gaza Fishermen
The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) condemns continued Israeli attacks against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip, and expresses concerns that in the latest attacks Israeli naval troops have arrested 6 fishermen and confiscated their fishing boat and equipment.
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.
