An Israeli navy vessel opened fire on an unidentified boat which approached it off the Gaza coast. The IDF reported that the navy ship encountered a “potential threat” while operating off the coast of Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip Monday morning, adding that the navy vessel “thwarted the threat”. “Earlier today, our troops spotted suspicious naval activity in the maritime zone along the Gaza Strip which posed a potential threat to Israeli Navy vessels,” an IDF spokesperson said in a statement.

Now we just need a little more information about the vessel they fired upon.
