GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian boy died Friday afternoon after Israeli gunboats opened fire on his fishing boat and flipped it over off the coast of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Gaza medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said 15-year-old Ziad Samir Al-Bardawil died after being treated for his injuries at the Abu Yousef An-Najjar Hospital.

Israel's military could not immediately be reached for comment.

When contacted by AFP, an Israeli military spokeswoman said that "this incident has not been reported by the Israeli side."

It's only a Palestinian. A hundredth of a Turk, a tenth of an American. NOT a big deal.

The Israeli war on common human decency and modern standards of civility continues unabated, I see.

I hope that M?'an will be able to reach the military and write this story again, with their comment and more about this young man and his family.

Elsewhere, the IDF denied any knowledge of the drowning of a Gaza fisherman whom Hamas authorities said was fired on by the Israeli navy.

Foreign news services routinely report Arab claims of Israeli incursions that the IDF said never happened. The French news service AFP quoted a Gaza hospital spokesman that the navy opened fire on fishing boats, one of which supposedly overturned, resulting in the drowning of an Arab teenager

you are liars

Amazingly, the Jerusalem Post has a better title for this article: 'IDF causes 15-year-old Palestinian's death off Gaza' http://www.jpost.com/Defense/Article.aspx?id=199945

All th Israeli-Arab wars were started by genocide-committing Israel in 'pre-emptive' wars including the 1972 Egyptian attack on Israel in the Egyptian Sinai by Egyptian Sadat because he fought an illegal occupation! Reason? All US Preisdents, but JFK, are converts from Judaism (Bushes) or have Jew blood, including Mr Obama! Since 1948 when Jew Truman 'created' Israel in 1948, US 'gentiles' footed the $80 billion/year cost US give Israel in aid! When US supports an evil Israel, US is evil too!

Apartheid, Zionazi Israel would not be murdering Palestinians daily and demolishing their homes if Abbas and the PA had allowed the Goldstone Report to go forward. Apartheid, Zionazi Israel would be too busy preparing a defense against warcrime charges at the Hague, and trying to improve its world image. Abbas and the PA gave Apartheid, Zionazi Israel the green light to continues its crimes and atrocities on the Palestinians by voting against the Goldstone Report, an unforgiveable sin.

If this is true, where are the condemnations from the politicians of our own countries, not only for this incident but for the injustice of the entire Israeli colonial enterprise? Is the Israeli lobby so powerful that we can't break away?

re #7 Amir 'Colin Wright, 3/4th of Americans are literally stupid and Sir, you're one of them :)' This suggests I have misjudged my audience.

re Israel #8 'Foreign news services routinely report Arab claims of Israeli incursions that the IDF said never happened...you are liars' The difficulty with this fine theory is that all too often photographs or other evidence subsequently turns up -- and it always seems to corroborate the Palestinian version of events. It is the IDF that lies. Routinely, assiduously, and without shame. It's literally been going on since 1948.

He was 15 years old! He was a kid fishing! He was no threat to the nuclear armed,7th strongest military in the world. The kid was fishing!! Obama! Congress! Where your words of anger,outrage or even a question? I call you, i write, and what do i get for my bother? I get the silence of betrayal. Where are the 'Arab Brothers'? Where is any to speak for a murdered 15 year old boy who was fishing in his own waters by a foreign power that had no right, no cause to do this. Oh God! WE CRY!

There was not a single mention of this murder in the mainstream media in Canada, yet reports about Hamas rockets traumatizing kindergarten children in Ashkelon (originally Asqalan, where most Gazans were expelled from in 48) could be found in major newspapers.
