GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli gunboats on Thursday opened fire toward Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip, a local official said.

Israeli forces opened fire at the boats off north-west Gaza as the fishermen as approached the three-mile limit Israel imposes along the coastline, said Mahfouth Kabariti, head of a federation for fishermen and water sports.

No injuries were reported, Kabariti told Ma'an.

Israel's army announced in February that the fishing zone for Palestinians in Gaza would be reduced from six to three miles following a rocket attack.

The zone had been extended to six miles as part of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that ended an eight-day conflict between Israel and Hamas in November.

It is illegal to hunt fish with dynamite.

Surely there must be at least one country to invoke the existing Law of the Sea. Oh well, another day, another horror.What a good idea Israel has, conscription at a young age:get 'em while young, with few exceptions, those youthful members of the IOF will be lifelong zionazis.What successive governments fail to understand is they are providing justification for successive generations of Palestinians to resist.
