Israeli naval forces opened fire towards a fishing boat offshore al-Sudaniya، northwest of Gaza city، injuring two Palestinian fishermen.

WAFA correspondent reported that Israeli navy fired rubber-coated steel bullets towards a fishing boat with a fisherman and his son aboard، injuring them and causing damage to the boat.

The Gaza Strip's sea should extend 20 nautical miles from the coast، according to the Oslo peace accords signed by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization، but Israel has a heavy naval presence restricting any traffic in or out of the enclave.

It also s the distance Gaza's fishermen can travel to fish، alternating the distance between six and nine nautical miles - significantly less than the amount designated in the Oslo agreements.

On the other side، at least a Palestinian was shot an injured with a rubber-coated steel bullet as Israeli forces quelled the weekly and peaceful anti-settlement demonstration in the village of Kufr Qaddoum to the east of Qalqilia، said a local activist.

Coordinator of the popular resistance committee in the village of Kufr Qaddoum، Murab Shtawi، said Israeli forces violently suppressed demonstrators، who also rallied to protest Israel’s closure of the main road that connects the village of Kufr Qaddoum with the city of Nablus since 2003.

Forces fired live and rubber-coated steel bullets as well as tear gas canisters at demonstrators، shooting and injuring a 19-year-old Palestinian with a rubber bullet to the head، which necessitated his transfer to hospital for medical treatment.
