Israeli warships wound a Palestinian south of Gaza

Gaza, June 6, 2009 (Ramattan) – A Palestinian citizen was wounded on Saturday as Israeli gunboats opened heavy fire at the southern coast of Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical sources said.

Sources added that the 25-year-old Iyad Abd Rabo was moderately injured after the Israeli navy shot at Gaza shore near the city of Rafah south of Gaza.

After the Israel's 22-day offensive on Gaza 4 months ago, the Israeli navy frequently opens fire at Gaza shore, targeting

Gazan fishermen and their boats.
