Gaza teen dead after Israel fires on fishing boat

Dec. 17, 2010 9:42 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 19, 2010 11:29 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- A Palestinian boy died Friday afternoon after Israeli gunboats opened fire on his fishing boat and flipped it over off the coast of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip.

Gaza medical services spokesman Adham Abu Salmiya said 15-year-old Ziad Samir Al-Bardawil died after being treated for his injuries at the Abu Yousef An-Najjar Hospital.

Israel's military could not immediately be reached for comment.

When contacted by AFP, an Israeli military spokeswoman said that "this incident has not been reported by the Israeli side."
