A Palestinian fisherman was reported missing after an attack by Israeli naval forces off the coast of the northern Gaza Strip yesterday night.

According to a report by Ma’an, the head of the Gaza fishermen’s union, Nizar Ayyash, said an Israeli navy ship attacked and sunk a boat belonging to Muhammad Al-Hissi at 22:30 last night, and that Al-Hissi went missing shortly afterwards.

Ayyash said searches were being conducted to find the fisherman.

The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza said that the Israeli navy “fired live rounds at the boats, then flooded them with high-pressure water cannons.”
