Israeli navy kidnaps Palestinian fisherman and his son at sea
 
GAZA, (PIC)-- Israeli navy gunboats intercepted a small Palestinian fishing boat off the coast of northern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning and kidnapped a fisherman and his son while fishing.
Nizar Ayyash, the chairman of the Palestinian fishermen syndicate, told the PIC that the fisherman Kamel Al-Anqah and his son Mahmoud were detained while fishing within the allowed range, about half a nautical mile, to the north of Gaza harbor.
He said that the navy gunboats tugged the small boat to the Ashdod port.
Israeli navy routinely harasses Palestinian fishermen especially during the height of the fishing season.
