      Israeli navy arrests three Palestinian fishermen in Gaza waters
      http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2008-09/02/content_9757193.htm


      GAZA, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Israeli forces arrested three
      Palestinian fishermen when they were fishing in Gaza waters on
      Tuesday, security sources said.

      Witnesses in northwestern Gaza Strip said Israeli marine vessels
      opened fire before and after the seizure of the three fishermen.

      The fishermen were taken by the Israeli soldiers and forced to
      eat which breaks their fasting on the second day of Muslim holy
      month of Ramadan, said the witnesses.

      On Monday, two other fishermen were also injured when the
      Israeli gunboats targeted their fishing boats.

      The shooting and the detention of the fishermen violates a
      fragile ceasefire started from June between Israel and the Islamic
      Hamas movement which rules the Gaza Strip.

      According to the deal, Israel has to ease the blockade it
      imposed on Gaza after Hamas took over the territory last year in
      exchange for calmness.

      Gaza crossings to remain closed

      Israel will keep border crossings into the Gaza Strip closed to
      commercial and humanitarian goods "until further notice," Israeli
      media outlets reported Wednesday.

      The Israeli Minister of Defense Ehud Barak ordered the borders
      closed late on Monday, despite of the ongoing talks to free the
      captured Israeli soldier in Gaza Strip Gilad Shalit.

      The decision, according to Israeli media sources, comes after an
      alleged violation of the truce deal between Hamas and Israel.

      According to a Palestinian source, Israel has violated the truce
      more than 50 times in the first few days following the begining of
      truce.

      Israel says, Palestinians fired home-made shells at Israeli targets
      from the Gaza Strip.

      This closure of the crossings violates the terms of the Egyptian-
      brokered a ceasefire truce on 19 June negotiated by Hamas and
      Israel, which stipulates that Hamas would halt firing home-made
      shells into Israel, in exchange of lifting the year-long siege on
      the Gaza Strip.
