Israeli Forces Arrest 14 Fishermen, Confiscate 3 Fishing Boats
Number of Arrested Fishermen Increases to 29 and Confiscated Boats to 9
The Palestinian Centre for Human Rights (PCHR) repeats its condemnation of Israelís violations against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip. PCHR is concerned over the escalation of Israeli attacks directed against fishermen since the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip that was stopped following the cease-fire agreement reached between Palestinian resistance groups and the Israeli occupation forces, under Egyptian and international auspices.
Attacks against fishermen escalated despite the Israeli authorities' announcement of allowing the fishermen to fish up to 6 nautical miles off the Gaza shore in the context of the cease-fire. Since the cease-fire agreement came about, Israeli occupation forces have arrested 29 fishermen, including 14 who were arrested on Saturday, 01 December 2012. Additionally, 9 fishing boats were confiscated and damaged, including 3 boats that were confiscated on Saturday.
