Two Palestinian fishermen were injured by Israeli navy forces’ fire on Sunday night.

The fishermen were working on their boats in Khan Yunis, a city in the southern Gaza Strip.

Ashraf Al Qudra, official spokesman for the Ministry of Health in Gaza, said that the fishermen, who received medium injuries to their feet, are currently being treated at the Nasser Medical Complex.

Meanwhile, security sources revealed the identities of the fishermen as Ibrahim Al Hujooj and Khader Abu Shamalah.

Israeli forces attack fishermen in Gaza on a regular basis and confiscate their boats from time to time.
