Israeli navy kills Palestinian off Gaza coast

Palestinian resistance movement slams Saudi Adel al-Jubeir's misleading remarks

Israel has maintained a blockade of the Gaza Strip, which is dominated by Hamas Islamists, for more than a decade.

According to Zarifeh, members of the delegation will meet with Fatah and Hamas representatives, "but also with representatives of the Palestinian factions and representatives of the Palestinian Authority government in order to form a roadmap for the transfer of authority to the PA government so it can fulfill its role in the Gaza Strip".

Meanwhile, the Gaza fishermen's union said Abu Reyala's boat was targeted as it was making its way back to shore, and that the fishermen did not violate the limits of the fishing zone.

A Palestinian from the Gaza Strip died on Sunday after the Israeli navy fired on the boat he and two others were sailing in, a military spokeswoman said.

Across the occupied territories, "Israeli forces, including undercover units, used excessive and sometimes lethal force when they used rubber-coated metal bullets and live ammunition against Palestinian protesters", killing "at least 20, and injuring thousands". He added that the firing injured three fishermen, with one later pronounced dead.

Blizniouk and Chikalo were arrested by the Argentine national police in Buenos Aires two months later on February 21. The drugs apparently were very pure and had a street value of roughly $62 million on the street.

Hamas spokesman Abdel Latif Qanoua called the incident "an ugly crime the occupation is responsible for and a form of continuing aggression against our Palestinian people".

Fishing is one of the biggest industries in the Gaza Strip, a coastal enclave of nearly 2 million inhabitants. Israel restricts fishing to a seasonally adjusted zone of between 6 and 9 nautical miles.

The IDF will impose its routine general closure on crossings in and out of Gaza and the Palestinian Authority areas during the Jewish holiday of Purim which begins Wednesday at sunset.

Worldwide law views the West Bank and East Jerusalem as "occupied territories" and considers all Jewish settlement-building activity on the land as illegal.

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has condemned recent remarks made by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, who said the Gaza-based movement was "extremist".
