Gaza fishermen: Israeli navy hit skiff, 1 injured

June 2, 2011 2:02 P.M. (Updated: June 3, 2011 10:19 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza fishermen said one skiff was hit and sunk Wednesday night by an Israeli naval boat off the Rafah coast.

Fisherman Ahmad Abu Salmiyeh, 20, was injured after sinking with his boat following the collision, which took place near Tal As-Sultan in the southern Gaza Strip, his colleagues told Ma'an.

A group of fellow fishers rushed out to rescue him, Ma'an's correspondent reported.

An Israeli military spokesman said the army was not familiar with the incident, and denied that the navy sank a boat or caused injuries.

Israeli military ships patrol Gaza's Mediterranean shore, enforcing a 3-mile fishing limit and blockade on the strip, with fishermen reporting fire, boat confiscations and detentions by the navy.
