Israeli navy targets fishermen at sea

Do people realize that Israel routinely attacks unarmed fishermen at sea?

Gaza boats

(GAZA CITY) - One boat carrying two fishermen was damaged around 10.00 a.m. on 3 July 2011. This morning, Sabir and Umar Baker showed the Oliva crew the inside of the bow of their small hasaka boat, which had been hit by Israeli fire from a warship, about two miles out at sea. At the time of the attack, the Oliva was around 1 mile away.

After setting sail at approximately 9.15 a.m., the Oliva edged closer to the two mile point, directly in front of the port. Afterward, the Oliva continued towards the location of the attack, where the warship was still beside six other fishing boats.

Once the Oliva boat was less than 1 kilometer away, the warship left at full speed, circling around behind the fishing boats and then closer to shore, where it spent the next hour trawling up and down the coast of the Gaza Port area at a distance of about two miles from the coast.

After leaving the scene of the attack, the warship headed further south, away from the hasaka fishing boats and after half an hour shot two heavy pieces of artillery, which landed about 1 km west of the warship, not hitting or targeting any boat in particular. After around five minutes one gunshot was fired which was also not directed at any boat.

The Oliva remained at sea until 1:00 p.m. when fishing boats returned and there were no other notable incidents to report.
