Israeli Navy fires on Palestinian boat after it breaches sailing limit, military says

An Israeli Navy vessel fired on a boat Sunday after it ignored warnings and strayed from a fishing area in the northern Gaza Strip toward Israel, a military spokeswoman said.

A Palestinian from the Gaza Strip, who was traveling in the boat with two others, was killed in the incident.

The Gaza fishermans union said the boat was targeted as it made its way back to Gaza, and Nizar Ayyash, the secretary of the Gaza fishermans syndicate, said in a statement to Reuters that the men did not violate the maritime limit.
