"I heard the bullets going just above my head"

Mohammad explaining how the Israeli army started shooting at the boat while he and his aunt were fishing around 8 miles away from the shore, last December 17th. His aunt was directly hit in the hip by a bullet. Both of them were arrested, their boat confiscated and taken to Ashdod. Although international law grants 18 miles to Palestinian territorial waters, Israel has unilaterally imposed restrictions on how far Palestinian fishermen can go since 2007.
