An Israeli gunboat has opened fire on a Palestinian boat, injuring a fisherman on board the boat off the Gaza shore, Palestinian sources and witnesses say.
The boat, which was badly burnt, has been pulled to a fishing port in Gaza city, Xinhua reported.
According to Hamas ministry of agriculture, the fisherman was moderately burned as his partners succeeded in taking him to a hospital.
In another incident last Thursday, a Palestinian fisherman was killed when the Israeli navy ships hit his boat in southern Gaza Strip.
Patrols and attacks by the Israeli navy targeting Palestinians, regularly occur in as little a distance as three miles from the shore.
Israel does not allow the Palestinian boats to sail farther than two nautical miles (3.7 km) away from the shore though deals between Israel and the Palestinian National Authority have set the fishing zone of up to 20 nautical miles.
