GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian fisherman was shot and injured by Israeli forces off the coast of the Gaza Strip early Saturday, security sources said.

Gaza security sources told Ma'an that Israeli naval squadrons off the coast of northern Gaza fired at a Palestinian fishing boat, hitting a man in the foot.

The man was taken to Kamal Udwan Hospital for treatment, the sources said.

An Israeli military spokesman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

In the Oslo Accords, Israel agreed to a 20-nautical-mile fishing zone off Gaza's coast, but it has imposed a three-mile limit for several years, opening fire at fishermen who stray further.

Israel has controlled Gaza waters since its occupation of the area in 1967, and has kept several warships stationed off the coast since 2008.

Ooooo! Such butch Israeli sailors! They must be bored if they have to practice target shooting at CIVILIAN FISHERMEN in tiny fishing boats,trying to gather a simple livelihood in their OWN maritime waters(occupied of course).Terrorize! Disorganize! Enclave the natives further into their Gaza cage? Good Palestinians&Jews were casting their nets LONG BEFORE twisted Zionism arrived.And will be,long after it's gone BACK!! SUMUD,fishermen!
