At approximately 11am on Wednesday, 16 March 2011, Israeli naval vessels patrolling the sea opened fire on Palestinian fishing boats north of Al-Waha resort off the coast of Beit Lahyia town in the North-Gaza district.
As a result, Yaser Nasser Baker, 18, was injured by a bullet to  the right side of his torso.
According to Al Mezan's field investigations, Yaser, his father, and his brother were on board a hasaka (small boat) which was about 2 kilometers south to the separation fence when the Israeli gunboats opened fire.
The firing scared the fishermen on the boats and they sailed to land immediately.
