“We are living under a land and sea blockade. The fishing distance is limited. We get shot at by Israeli naval forces if we try to break the limit. They confiscate our boats and nets.” — Madleen Kullab, Gazan fisherwoman

The First Fisherwoman in Gaza

Madleen is the first and the only woman working in the fishing industry in the Gaza strip. With the land and the sea blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip, the craft has become very difficult. Her boat was confiscated many times by the Israeli Navy forces, and she can’t find the needed materials to fix her boat.
