Gaza's fisherman are often only able to fish a few miles from the coast - the distance varies. Israeli gunboats stop them going farther. REUTERS/Dylan Martinez SEARCH "MARTINEZ GAZA" FOR THIS STORY.

Israeli soldiers stand around their armoured personnel carriers (APCs) across from the northern Gaza Strip, as flares from Israel light the sky, July 18, 2014. Israel intensified its land offensive in Gaza with artillery, tanks and gunboats on Friday and warned it could "significantly widen" an operation Palestinian officials said was killing ever greater numbers of civilians. The Israeli land advance followed 10 days of barrages against Gaza from air and sea, hundreds of rockets fired by Hamas into Israel and failed attempts by Egypt, a broker of ceasefires in previous Israeli-Palestinian flare-ups, to secure a truce.
