Gaza’s risky fish business

Israel’s siege compels Palestinians to sneak into Egyptian waters for their daily catch.

Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip extends well beyond its land borders.

At sea, fishermen are only allowed to go within 5.5km of the Palestinian territory’s coast, hence many sneak into Egyptian waters to fish instead.

But by doing so, they put their lives at risk.

Al Jazeera’s Nicole Johnston reports from Rafah in southern Gaza on the plight of local fishermen.
