First Quarter Report of 2016, Israeli Violations against Palestinian Fishermen in the Naval Part of the Access Restricted Area

22-05-2016 08:57

The report shows the scale of Israeli violations against Palestinian fishermen in the Gaza Strip, and the extent of damage suffered by the fishing sector as a result of the maritime siege and the constant targeting of fishermen.

The report aims at exposing Israeli violations and providing documented information to the international community, particularly the High Contracting Parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention, to uphold their legal and moral responsibilities, and intervene to end the maritime siege. Further, the report is an additional tool dedicated to peace activists standing in solidarity with Palestinians to support their efforts in exerting pressure on foreign governments to fulfill their obligations, end the violations, and hold the perpetrators of such violations accountable.
