The Israeli Navy fired on a pair of Palestinian fishing vessels after they left the designated area the army allows for such activities, the IDF's Spokespersons Office said.

After the fishermen failed to heed warning shots, Navy forces fired on the boats, wounding one Palestinian. Security forces arrested four other Palestinian fishermen involved in the incident.

The wounded Palestinian was taken to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon with leg injuries, and the four others were transferred to the custody  of security forces for further investigation.
