Gaza (The Inside Palestine)- The Israeli occupation army kidnaped last night two Palestinian fishermen and confiscated their boat off the southern coast of the besieged Gaza Strip.
Chief of the fishermen syndicate in Gaza Nizar Ayyash said that two fishermen identified as Ahmed al-Faseeh and Mohamed al-Silawi, residents of Gaza City, went fishing on Friday evening before Israeli naval forces rounded them up within one nautical mile off the shore of Gaza City.
“After we lost contact with the fishermen last night, we learned that they had been arrested and their boat had been towed to the Israeli port of Ashdod,” Ayyash added.
On Thursday night, four Gaza fishermen were detained for several hours and one of them suffered a rubber bullet injury in his face after the Israeli occupation forces attacked their boat off the shore of Rafah area in southern Gaza.
Since the beginning of the current year, 13 Palestinian fishermen have been kidnaped from Gaza waters and four boats have been seized, according to local sources.
