The Israel Navy stops Palestinian fishing boats which approach the edge of the allowed fishing zone in the Gaza Strip and force their crew members to jump into the sea naked and swim to the navy vessels.  According to the Oslo Accords, Palestinian fishing boats are allowed to fish out to a distance of 20 miles from the beach, but in reality have never been allowed to go further than 12 miles.  These days the Navy stops boats straying more than 3 miles from the beach, sometimes even opening fire on them.
