Israeli Navy forces identified a Palestinian fishing boat, outside the fishing limits in the northern Gaza Strip. The forces called upon the Palestinians to stop but they continued. In response, the forces fired gunshots in the direction of the boat.
A preliminary investigation into the incident uncovered that one of the Palestinians sustained injuries to his lower extremities, apparently caused by the ricochet. The soldiers administered first aid and transferred him in light to moderate condition to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon (Yoav Zitun)
