GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fishermen say the locally rare batfish stingray is making a comeback in the waters off the coast of Gaza.

For the first time in five years, fishermen say they are catching the rays by the hundreds.

The batfish ray takes a triangular shape with large wings -- some are as large as 80 kilograms. A kilo of the ray sells for 10 shekels ($2.68) in local markets.

"People in al-Shati refugee camp in Gaza City rush to buy the batfish and consider it healthy, especially for little kids," said Mahfouth al-Kabariti, the head of the Gaza fishermen's union.

Awsome fish. They defied the Israeli embargo to sacrifice themselves to fill the bellies of poor and undernourished Gazans. Truly God sent ....
