Israeli gunboats open fire off Gaza coast, despite truce

Israeli gunboats shelled the coast of Khan Younis in southern Gaza on Wednesday morning despite the ongoing halt in fighting, according to an Al Jazeera correspondent. 

Meanwhile, Israel's Walla news website reported a further incident off the coast of Gaza's shores. 

"A second shooting incident on the shores of the Gaza Strip," said Walla defence correspondent Amir Bohbot on X.

"Navy fighters opened fire on a Palestinian boat that was trying to go out into the open sea from the shores of Deir al-Balah. The boat returned to the shore."
