author Wednesday May 30, 2012 13:05author by Sarah Snobar - IMEMC & agencies Report post

The Israeli Navy abducted, on Wednesday, four Palestinian fishermen in Palestinian territorial waters off the coast of Beit Lahia town, in the Gaza Strip.

The Maan News Agency reported that the four fishermen were forced off their boats after being surrounded by Israeli gunships, and were moved to an unknown destination.

Nour al-Sultan, 49 years old, and his brother, Hassan, 39, were on one boat and Jihan Sultan, 38, and his brother, Zaher, 22, were on another.

Palestinian fishermen in Gaza are regularly and frequently attacked by the Israeli military. Boats are confiscated, and fishermen are limited to fishing within three nautical miles of the coast or even less, contrary to the Oslo Accords.
