Shots Fired at IDF Patrol Boat Off Gaza Coast
JNS.org – Shots were fired from the Gaza coast at an Israeli Navy patrol boat on Thursday during the arrest of Palestinian fisherman.
No casualties or damages were reported.
The Israeli patrol boat fired warning shots when it noticed a Palestinian vessel entering a restricted fishing zone in the northern Gaza Strip.
One of the suspects was lightly injured when he failed to stop. He was taken for medical treatment and interrogation. The other suspect returned to the designated fishing zone, as gunfire came from the Gaza coast and was directed at the Israeli patrol boat, which did not return fire.
No one has claimed responsibility for the gunfire, Yediot Aharonot reported.
