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".
"Troops ordered him to turn back. As he refused to obey they fired warning shots and then shot towards his boat," she said.
