Hamas reports fisherman killed by IDF fire off Gaza coast

IDF naval vessels fired on a Palestinian boat off the northern Gaza Strip on Friday, killing a fisherman, Hamas officials said according to a Reuters report.
An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed that a fishing boat approaching the limits of where Palestinian vessels are allowed was shot at by IDF forces.
