A Palestinian fisherman was injured by fire from an Israeli naval boat, Wednesday, while sailing offshore of Gaza City, according to witnesses.They said that an Israeli naval boat opened fire at 23-year-old fisherman Fakher Abu Rayyala, while he sailing within the six-nautical-miles allowed fishing zone, seriously injuring him.

Abu Rayyala was transferred, with serious wounds, to a hospital for medical treatment, where he was set to undergo emergency surgery.

WAFA notes that the Israeli navy continues to target Palestinian fishermen sailing off the coasts of Gaza despite a ceasefire deal, made on August 26th, and which recently put an end to the latest Israeli military aggression on the region.
