GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian fisherman shot by the Israeli navy two weeks ago succumbed to his wounds Sunday morning, Gaza medical authorities said.

Spokesman for the Gaza Ministry of Health Ashraf al-Qidra told Ma'an that 52-year-old Imad Shukri Salim was announced dead Sunday morning.

Salim was shot in the chest by Israeli navy two weeks ago while he was fishing off the coast in the area of al-Sudaniya in the northern Gaza Strip, al-Qidra said.

Israeli forces shot two Palestinian fishermen off the coast of the al-Sudaniya area in the month of May alone.

Palestinian fishermen are only allowed to go three nautical miles from Gaza's shore, even though an agreement previously settled on 20 nautical miles.

Israeli naval forces frequently harass Palestinian fishermen who near the three-mile limit, as well as those inside the zone.

There are 4,000 fishermen in Gaza. According to a 2011 report by the International Committee of the Red Cross 90 percent are poor, an increase of 40 percent from 2008 and a direct result of Israeli limits on the fishing industry.

The man was a hero.. To feed his starving family, he risked his life on a daily basis.. His life was taken in the most obscene way.. To be used as target practice by the isreali navy.. For fishing within their target range.. Such a repulsive and repugnant society...

How can Israel get away with it time after time? For me this is murder. Or do IDF claims that the fishermen are a treath to the state of Israel, their military or civilians?

Israel can't have Palestinians out fishing. They might net some food. And then Palestinians would eat the food and stay alive. What a disaster that would be! Clearly a grave security risk for Israel, The Jewish People, and all of civilization.
