In response to the “calm” allegedly maintained by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization over this past weekend — and as part of a deal worked out with Egyptian mediators — Israel agreed to increase the fishing zone for Gazans from the current six miles to a record 15 miles – 24 kilometers.

The new expanded fishing zone goes into effect at 6 am Monday morning (1 April 2019), according to the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) and liaison to the Palestinian Authority Arabs in Gaza, IDF Col. Iyad Sarkhan.
