Everything is an assault craft to the Israeli Navy
A Palestinian fisherman has been shot dead by the Israeli navy off the Gaza Strip.
“Fisherman Mohammed Bakr died by a bullet by the Israeli navy today in the sea north of the Gaza Strip,” Adham Abu Selmiya, heading the Palestinian territory’s medical services, said on Friday.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said the fisherman was in restricted waters “heading towards Israel”…
Hundreds marched in the funeral for the 20-year-old fisherman in Beit Lahiya, shooting in the air and chanting slogans.
Israeli navy vessels enforcing a naval blockade on the Palestinian territory regularly fire at Palestinian fishermen to prevent them from venturing more than a few kilometres from shore.
Cossacks think it’s great fun to use the serfs for target practice.
Seems to me I recall a legend about a fisher of men being killed in the same region by imperial overlords.
