The Israeli occupation navy on Monday evening kidnaped three Palestinian fishermen as they were working on a boat off the coast of the besieged Gaza Strip.
According to the Fishermen Committees, Israeli naval forces rounded up three fishermen and confiscated the boat they were aboard.
The fishermen were identified as Ramadan Salah, Majed Miqdad and Ali Salah.
Israeli naval forces and their gunboats are around Gaza fishermen almost every day, harassing them, shooting at them, damaging their boats, and making arrests. Sometimes fishermen are injured or killed during gunfire attacks.
Under the 1993 Oslo accords, Palestinian fishermen are permitted to fish up to 20 nautical miles off the coast of Gaza, but since then Israel has kept reducing the fishing area gradually to a limit between six to three nautical miles as part of its blockade on Gaza.
