"Israeli gunboats attacked international activists and fishermen in Gaza. A press TV correspondent was injured during the attack.

Members of the Civil Peace Service, aboard the Oliva boat which monitors Gazan fishermen' human rights were targeted on Sunday for the fourth day in a row.
An Israeli navy boat hemmed in the Oliva creating turbulence in the water aiming to capsize it.

But this time a Press TV crew was on-board and captured the latest Israeli violations against fishermen and the human rights monitors.

In recent days Israeli gunboats have been firing their machine guns and water cannons at fishermen and international activists.

On Thursday the Oliva crew was threatened with lethal force.

The fishing community is often similarly targeted as the farmers in the so-called buffer zone and a three nautical mile fishing limit is enforced with comparable aggression.

The fishermen have been devastated by Israeli naval restrictions with most fishermen left unable to provide for their families.

As we were returning back to the fishermen seaport I tried to stand up on my feet only to realize that my ankle was broken when the Israeli gunboat was trying to Capsize the Oliva boat.
