The Israeli occupation navy, on Monday morning, attacked a Palestinian fishing boat off the coast of the besieged Gaza Strip, claiming it responded to a security threat.

Zakaria Baker, the coordinator of the Palestinian fishermen committees, said that an Israeli gunboat fired today two projectiles into the waters near a fishing boat during its presence off the shores of Gaza.

The Israeli occupation army claimed its forces spotted suspicious naval activity in the maritime zone along with Gaza which posed a potential threat to Israeli naval vessels, adding that the activity was neutralized.
