JERUSALEM — The Israeli military says it has opened fire on a Palestinian boat off the Gaza coast, killing one man who was on board.

The military says the boat sailed beyond an Israeli-imposed designated fishing zone, ignoring verbal warnings and warning shots. It says naval forces then opened fire.

The military says one man was killed and two others were taken into custody for questioning.

No further details were immediately available.
