GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian fisherman was shot by Egyptian boats in the sea near Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Spokesman for the Gaza ministry of health Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that a fisherman was shot in the face by Egyptian boats off the coast of Rafah.

Al-Qidra said that the victim was 16 years old but did not identify him by name.

He was taken to the European Gaza Hospital with moderate to serious injuries, al-Qidra added.

Although Israeli soldiers enforcing a 7-year-old blockade on the Gaza Strip frequently fire at Palestinian fishermen who stray too far from the coast, Egyptian forces -- who also enforce the siege, at Israel's request -- do so much more rarely.
