Israeli warships shot at Palestinian fishermen off the coast of Gaza earlier on Saturday.

No injuries were reported but the fishermen were forced to flee back to land after being on the receiving end of heavy machine gunfire.

According to Ma’an News, the Israeli navy reported seeing one fisherman outside the designated fishing zone of 3 miles off-shore.

The limitation on Gaza’s 4,000 fishermen due to the Israeli blockade leaves many of them unable to do their jobs efficiently.
