Israeli naval forces, on Wednesday morning, targeted a fishing boat off Al-Sudaniya shores in Gaza, causing it to burst into flames. Al-Sudaniyya shore is the fishing permitted area for Palestinians. However, Israeli naval forces target the fishermen boats on a regular basis.

PNN reports that, according to the Palestinian information center, the fisherman was on the boat when it was targeted, and his fate is still unknown.

Other Palestinian sources said that no injuries have been reported.

Gaza fishermen have been reporting daily attacks by the Israeli navy since the beginning of the truce at the end of 2014. These attacks include shelling and detentions.

In another incident, the day before, Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian homes east of al-Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza. However, no one was injured in the attack.
