Israeli warships opened fire at Gaza’s fishermen to the north of the Gaza Strip and interrogated some of them.
Local sources said the Israeli navy fired at fishermen at 6:00am off the coast of Bit Lahyia to the north of Gaza.
The sources added that the Israeli navy also detained some Palestinian fishermen and their boat for some time before being released.

Following the 2014 ceasefire agreement between Palestinian factions and Israel, Palestinian fishermen were allowed to fish at six nautical miles.
In April, the Israeli army increased the fishing zone to nine nautical miles except for the northern part of Gaza, which remained six nautical miles, yet fishermen continue to be targeted despite adhering to these limitations.
