Israeli gunboats 'fire at fishermen'

Jan. 4, 2012 11:12 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 5, 2012 9:44 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli gunboats on Wednesday opened fire at fishermen off the coast of southern Gaza, witnesses said.

No injuries were reported.

An Israel army spokeswoman was not familiar with the incident.

Meanwhile, Israeli tanks entered the Gaza Strip through the Kisufim gate near Khan Younis and opened fire as bulldozers razed farmland in the area, onlookers told Ma'an.

An military spokeswoman said soldiers identified an explosive device near the border fence and safely detonated it. She said soldiers fired tank shells during the procedure as a "method of deterrence."

The Israeli army holds Hamas fully responsible for maintaining calm in the coastal enclave, she added.
