Israeli Navy Kills Gaza Fisherman

A Palestinian fisherman has been killed after the Israeli Navy opened fire on a vessel it accused of breaching the blockade north of Gaza Strip. Nizar Ayash, the Palestinian fishermen’s union chief, said Monday’s shooting and the arrest of four other crew happened in one incident, and two more arrests were made when the military boarded another Gaza boat overnight, Aljazeera reported. An Israeli military spokesperson confirmed the shooting. “A vessel deviated from the designated fishing zone in the northern Gaza Strip,” she told AFP. The dead man’s family identified him as Mohammed Bakr, 25. His body was transferred to a morgue in Gaza ahead of his funeral later on Monday.
