A Palestinian fisherman was critically injured early Saturday after an Israeli warship opened fire on his vessel off the coast of Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip, Ma'an reported.
The incident came as a number of Israeli military vehicles crossed the border near Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, razing agricultural land in a limited incursion and yet another violation of the August ceasefire.
Medical sources said that Israeli forces opened fire with machine guns before firing a shell at a small fishing boat belonging to a Gaza resident identified as Jamal Numan, a resident of al-Shati refugee camp in western Gaza City.
The sources said that Numan was critically injured in the attack, and was taken to Abu Youssef al-Najjar Hospital in Rafah for treatment.
They said that Numan's fishing vessel was completely destroyed by the shell fired by Israeli forces.
Also on Saturday morning, Israeli military vehicles crossed the border into Palestinian agricultural lands in the region of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip.
Sources said that the vehicles exited a military base on the Israeli side of the border before crossing into Gaza and razing agricultural land belonging to local farmers.
The sources added that the limited incursion was accompanied by heavy gunfire fired in the direction of local homes.
