Medics: Israeli Forces Shoot 17-Year-Old in Gaza

TEHRAN (FNA)- A Palestinian teenager was shot by Israeli forces in Jabaliya refugee camp, medics said.

Jameel Heesha, 17, was shot in his left foot near the Northern border of Gaza Strip, Ma'an reported Friday.

He was taken to a nearby hospital with moderate injuries.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return the calls seeking comment.

On Thursday, Israeli gunboats opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats off the coast of the Gaza Strip, a local official said.

Israeli forces opened fire at the boats off North-west Gaza as the fishermen approached the three-mile limit Israel imposes along the coastline, said Mahfouth Kabariti, head of a federation for fishermen and water sports. No injuries were reported.

Israel's army announced in February that the fishing zone for Palestinians in Gaza would be reduced from six to three miles following a rocket attack.

The zone had been extended to six miles as part of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire that ended an eight-day conflict between Israel and Hamas in November.
