The IDF restricted the Gaza fishing zone to 10 nautical miles from 15 in response to violence along its southern border.
The office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories announced the move on Wednesday night just one day after expanding it to 15 nautical miles, in a gesture to the Palestinians.
The move was part of an effort to ensure calm along the Gaza border. But on Wednesday Palestinians in Gaza launched incendiary balloons that set off some 11 fires in southern Israel.
