23 March 2013

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas movement lashed out at the Israeli occupation authorities for reducing the area of fishing off the coast of Gaza Strip to three nautical miles.

Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, urged the Egyptian leadership to assume its responsibility vis-à-vis that violation in its capacity as the patron of the calm agreement.

Abu Zuhri held the IOA fully responsible for that decision and its repercussions after the calm agreement had allowed fisherman in Gaza to fish in an area of six nautical miles off the coasts of the enclave.

The IOA decided to reduce the area of fishing and to close Karm Abu Salem commercial crossing in response to the alleged firing of two local rockets from Gaza into 1948 occupied Palestinian land.
