Since January 2011, DCI has documented 16 cases in which fishing boats containing children have been intercepted by Israeli patrol boats off the coast of Gaza. In 75 percent of cases, the boats were within the fishing limit unilaterally imposed by Israel. In 88 percent of cases, the patrol boats opened fired without prior warning, detaining the crew and taking them to Ashdod port for interrogation. In at least 63 percent of cases, their boats and fishing equipment were confiscated without reason, thereby depriving them of their only source of income.
