2 Gazan Fishermen Wounded, 4 Missing in Israeli Fire

Two Gaza fishermen were wounded and four missing on Monday after the Israeli navy fired on two boats off the coast, officials from the Hamas-run security services said.
The two wounded fishermen were pulled out of the water off the southern port of Rafah after the Israeli fire destroyed both boats, the AFP quoted a Hamas security official as saying.
Under Israel’s eight-year blockade of the Palestinian territory, Gaza’s fishermen cannot trawl the waters beyond six nautical miles off the coast.
There are around 4,000 fishermen working in Gaza, more than half of whom live below the poverty line.
