A Palestinian fishing boat exploded off the Gaza coast when it headed north toward Israeli territory in an apparent attempted terror attack on Sunday morning. No one was wounded in the incident. The Navy spotted the abandoned boat and followed it for about an hour. When it was some 300 meters off the Gaza coast and making its way north, the boat blew up, the army said. The IDF said the incident bore the hallmarks of an attempted terror attack and it was examining how the explosives were detonated. It was unclear whether the target of the apparent attack was a Navy vessel or a site on the Israeli coast, the army said.
