The UK has not discussed with counterparts in the EU the issue of the number of incidents of the Israeli military shooting at fishing boats off Gaza and the number of fishermen killed since August 2014. However, we have discussed the issue with Israeli contacts and with Palestinian and International Non-Governmental Organisations.
