According to the "Oslo Accords", Palestinians have 20 sea miles fishing area in Gaza Strip, but since Israel tightened blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2007, it only allowed the local fishermen to fish in the range of 3 sea miles from the coast. This seriously hindered the development of the local fishing industry which is financial resources of about 3,000 Palestinian families. (Xinhua/Chen Xu)
