"These are the worst conditions we have known."- Rami, a Palestinian fisherman. ---- Whenever Rami, a Palestinian fisherman goes to sea, it's always the same scenario. Made 5 nautical miles of the coast (the Palestinians can go up to 6 nautical miles), Israeli soldiers fired volleys and asks the fisherman to turn. In fact, it often happens that the limit be reduced or even abolished, preventing fishermen leave the shore. With damage to their boat and gasoline prices, they often work at a loss. ---- "In September and October is the season for sardines and they can be found between 6 and 9 nautical miles from the coast, so with a limit of 6 miles, is almost nothing back home "says Taha Bakr a crew member Rami. Fishing profession goes from father to son in the family of Taha, but with the danger and the little money he brings home, the young man enrolled in the School of Journalism. 84% of fishermen survive on humanitarian aid from the UN.

With the Oslo Treaty (1993), the boundary of the fishing area is 20 nautical miles according to Maria Jose Torres, deputy head of the Office of PALESTINIAN branch of the humanitarian agency of the UN. As each time, the Israeli state does what he wants to kill small fire in the Palestinian-do-s.
Nizar Ayash according to the head of the fishermen's union, the 4000 Gazan fishermen, half live below the poverty line. During the protective border operation, several boats and a lot of fishing gear were destroyed in the bombing. If the situation continues, it will not be possible to fish for Gazans ...

Source: the cease-fire, no change in the blockade of Gaza ...

Despite the cease-fire agreement signed last August, there was no change in restrictions to cross into Gaza while the blockade was, by agreement, be reduced. Between August 28 and September 15, only a third of trucks (3700) were able to cross the border. Predictions on the percentage of unemployed could reach 55% by Maher al -Tabba, director of public relations and media for the Chamber of Commerce of Gaza.

Same story for Maria Jose Torres, deputy head of the Office of PALESTINIAN branch of the humanitarian agency of the UN. No changes have occurred at the point of Erez and Kerem Shalom crossing ... The apartheid regime continues with impunity under the eyes of the United Nations.
