Israeli and Palestinian sources reported on Saturday that the Israeli
Navy fired at a Palestinian fishing boat off the Gaza coast. The attack
is considered a direct violation to the ceasefire deal reached between
Israel and the Palestinians.
The boat caught fire, but no injuries were reported, Palestinian security officials reported.
Meanwhile, Israel and its military commanders did not comment on the attack.
Usually Israel claims that the boat was suspected on attempting to smuggle arms into the Gaza Strip, or would claim that “the boat was suspicious”
In a separate event, an 11-year old Palestinian child died of wounds sustained by Israeli military fire in Beit Lahia, in the northern part of the Gaza Strip, two weeks ago.
The child died of Saturday at Al Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.
