A booby-trapped fishing boat yesterday exploded near an Israel Navy vessel off the northern Gaza coast, in a failed terror attack.LET'S GIVE THEN A COUNTRY!
No one was wounded in the blast, which occurred about 300 meters from the Gaza coast, near the Israeli border.
At about 6 A.M. Israel Navy vessels on a routine patrol off the Gaza coast saw several fishing boats leaving the area permitted for fishing. An unmanned fishing boat moved toward an Israeli patrol vessel in a suspicious manner, but the navy boats kept their distance and did not fire at it, military sources said.
The Palestinian vessel exploded a few hundred meters away from the Israeli vessel. It was estimated to be carrying hundreds of kilograms of explosives on board.
