Two Taiwanese fishing boats were hit by 17 bullets coming from Indonesian vessels, presumably the coast guard of Indonesia. Taiwan's Fisheries Agency said in a report that denied claims that the boats were poaching in Indonesian waters. Tsay Tzu-yaw, chief of Taiwan's Fisheries Agency said those shots were clearly not warning shots and asked Indonesia to provide an explanation.

I'm not following here. Is there a general conflict between these two countries? It sounds ridiculous to attack a fishing boat without some vocal approach first. I understand that they entered the other side territory but it is not supposed to function like that. It could be something else than enemies attacking...Like, for example, fishing expedition off the course.

Indonesia has admitted to arrest illegal fishers in their territorial waters and sinking the vessels.

I guess everyone is picking on Taiwan as they are not recognized as a nation by majority of the countries around the world.
A few years ago Philippines also opened fire on a Taiwanese fishing boat and killed a fisherman, then gave chase but turned around and ran when a Taiwanese warship showed up.
