Gaza Fisherman Shot Dead by Egyptian Army

A fisherman from the Gaza Strip was shot dead by the Egyptian army overnight for unclear reasons, Palestinian officials said on Saturday, calling for an immediate investigation into the incident. Medical sources in Gaza said that Abdullah Zeidan, 33, from the Shati refugee camp, was shot in the chest by Egyptian forces near the naval border with Egypt in the south of the coastal enclave, The New Arab reported. He was taken to hospital but died early on Saturday morning.  Gaza’s interior ministry said an initial investigation indicated “the Palestinian fishing boat did not cross the Egyptian (maritime) border”. “We call on the Egyptian authorities to open an urgent investigation into this incident,” spokesman Iyad al-Bozum said in a statement. Egyptian officials did not immediately comment. Meanwhile, the head of the fishing union in Gaza announced a halt in fishing until Sunday evening to protest the killing.
