Egyptian mediators in Gaza press Palestinians to reconcile

Hamas meetings with Egyptian officials positive

The Israeli occupation authorities announced on Sunday the imposition of a comprehensive security cordon on the occupied West Bank and the closure of the crossings into the Gaza Strip during the Jewish "Purim" holiday, Quds Press has reported.

"Naval forces called on the suspects to stop and when they did not comply, warning shots were fired into the air". Another two were detained from Ramallah and al-Bireh.

The Gazan fishermen's union is striking on Monday and Tuesday, in protest over the deadly Israeli policing of Gaza's waters, which resulted in the killing of a teenage fisherman on Sunday. According to Israeli figures, 68 Israeli soldiers and five Israeli civilians were killed in the conflict, while 2,522 others, including 740 soldiers, were injured. The government did not comment on the strike, while Hamas called on it to perform its duties and to resolve the hard and disastrous humanitarian crises in Gaza. The blockade specifically prohibits Palestinians from fishing beyond six nautical miles (11 kilometers) off the coastline.

In the meantime, Gaza fishermen say the designated fishing zone is too small to meet the demands of the region's population of roughly two million people.

Israeli human rights group B'Tselem recently concluded that Israel's Gaza closure and "harassment of fishermen" have been "destroying Gaza's fishing sector", with 95 percent of fishermen living below the poverty line.
