GAZA CITY (Ma'an) – Israeli naval forces shot and killed a Palestinian fisherman, and arrested two others while they were sailing in small fishing boats off the coast south of Gaza City early Saturday morning.

Speaker of the union of Gaza fishermen Nizar Ayyash told Ma'an that Israeli gunboats opened machine gun fire at a group of Palestinian fishermen. Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra confirmed to Ma'an that Tawfiq Abu Riyala died from injuries sustained by the fire.

Ayyash added that Israeli navy then seized two fishing boats and took them to unknown destination.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that after four vessels deviated from the fishing zone this morning, Israeli forces ordered the vessels to halt. Warning shots were fired towards the engines of the vessels, and two hits were confirmed. Two of the vessels were detained by Israeli forces, the other two turning back.

Another Palestinian life lost due to Israeli provocations done purely for political purposes. Shame on Israel .

RIP

Israel broke cease fire once again. I don't want to see anyone complain it we respond.

In another violation of truce agreement. Israeli army informs Gaza Palestinians that fishing zone is reduced to 4 nautical miles(Agreement was to extend it from 6 to 12). Now Israel has reduced it even further.
