Local sources said that IOF gunboats opened heavy machinegun fire at Gaza coast wounding Allam Bakir, whose wounds were described as moderate.
Sources in the marine police earlier told PIC reporter that IOF gunboats shelled Palestinian fishing boats off the Rafah shores, south of the Gaza Strip, with ten projectiles while at sea. No injuries or damages were reported.
IOF navy patrols routinely harass Palestinian fishermen while at work even though they work in areas fixed by the IOF.
Meanwhile, three Palestinian children were injured when IOF ordnance exploded near them in Beit Hanun, north of the Gaza Strip, on Monday.
Adham Abu Salmiya, coordinator of military and medical services, told the PIC reporter that the children were taken to a local hospital, adding that one of them was 8 years old.
