Gaza Interior Ministry condemns Egyptian Navy Attacks

The Human Rights Unit (HRU) of the Gaza  Interior Ministry condemns the practices of Egyptian Naval Forces against Palestinian fishermen.

Egyptian attacks against Palestinian fishermen have included shooting, arrests, and confiscating the boats of fishermen.

The HRU denounces these practices led by Islamic-Arab-Egyptian Naval Forces against their Palestinian siblings in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Unit appeals to the Egyptian Military to cease assaulting Gaza's fishermen, who trawl the sea to earn their living.
