Fifteen Palestinian fishermen along with three
internationals have been kidnapped in Palestinian
waters by the Israeli Navy. They were fishing
seven miles off the coast of Deir Al Balah,
clearly in Gaza fishing waters and well within
the fishing limit detailed in the Oslo Accords of 1994.
The fishermen and the human right's observers
were transferred from 3 separate boats to the
Israeli warships. Other Palestinian fishermen
reported that the 3 boats were seen being taken north by the Israeli Navy.
The three internationals are Andrew Muncie from
Scotland, Darlene Wallach from the United States
and Victor Arrigoni from Italy. The U.K., U.S.
and Italian embassies in Tel Aviv have been
contacted and know about the abductions.
Please call the Israeli Ministry of Justice at
+972 26 46 66 66 and register your outrage over
these illegal actions by the Israeli Navy. Then
call the Embassies in Jerusalem and make sure
they know that many of us are appalled by Israel's illegal search and seizure.
