GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Israel decided on Sunday to reduce the fishing zone open for Gaza fishermen from 6 nautical miles to 3, and they warned that boats which exceed that limit will be fired upon.

The reduction was confirmed by sources in the Palestinian liaison department.

Nevertheless, the union of Gaza fishermen says it will stick to the former fishing zone.

The union’s speaker Nizar Ayyash told Ma'an that fishermen would “find out the certainty of the news if they will be fired at.”

He highlighted that some fishermen have already entered the 6-mile zone.
