Navy opens fire at fishing boat off Gaza coast; man injured

Medical sources in the Gaza Strip reported that the IDF Navy opened fire at a fishing boat sailing off the coast of Gaza. According to the sources, a fisherman was injured in his leg from the shots and was taken to Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.


The IDF stated that the boat was sailing north, toward a restricted maritime zone near Israel, and was warned to turn around. However, after the fisherman did not heed the calls, the force opened fire at the boat's engine. (Elior Levy and Yoav Zitun)
