Navy fires on Palestinian fishing vessel in first truce violation
By The Associated Press and Itim
GAZA CITY - An Israel Navy boat fired toward a Palestinian fishing vessel off
Gaza on Saturday in a first Israeli violation of a week-old truce in Gaza,
Palestinian security officials said.
The vessel caught fire, but no one was hurt, the security officials said.
The Israel Defense Forces had no immediate comment.
Also in Gaza, an 11-year-old boy died of injuries he sustained two weeks ago
in an Israeli military operation in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahiya,
hospital doctors said.
The boy died Saturday at Gaza City's Shifa Hospital.
On Friday night, a Border Policeman was lightly hurt by rocks hurled at a
patrol near Qalandiyah, south of the West Bank city of Ramallah.
He received treatment at the site.
Earlier Friday evening, gunshots were fired at Border Policemen in the same
area. There were no casualties and no damage was reported.
