GAZA (Reuters) - Hundreds of Palestinian youth activists sailed from the shores of the Gaza Strip on Monday to protest at Israel's restrictions on fishing in the seas off the Islamist-ruled enclave. Palestinian fishermen say they cannot meet demand in Gaza due to Israel's naval blockade on the territory and limit of six nautical miles in which they can take out their boats off shore. Israel eased the blockade somewhat in 2010 after an Israeli commando raid on a ship in an activist flotilla bent on reaching Gaza left nine Turks dead and raised an international uproar, but Palestinians say the gestures were not enough. On Monday, Gaza's Coalition Intifada group said about 200 youths boarded fishing boats heading out of Gaza City toward the fishing zone boundary, before returning to shore. Organizers said some boats crossed the six-mile maritime limit. "We have sent a message of solidarity with the fishermen and a message to the world that they must act to end the Gaza blockade," said Shorouq Mahmoud, the group's spokeswoman. An Israeli military spokeswoman said none of the boats breached the fishing zone limit. Israeli forces have regularly shot at Gaza boats seen as trying to breach the blockade. Israel tightened its land blockade on Gaza after the Islamist Hamas seized control of the enclave in 2007. (Reporting by Nidal Almughrabi; Editing by Maayan Lubell and Mark Heinrich)

More witnesses are coming forward with new details on the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot following former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson's devastating testimony last week against former President Donald Trump, says a member of a House committee investigating the insurrection. The panel already has subpoenaed former White House counsel Pat Cipollone, who investigators remain hopeful will appear Wednesday for a deposition, and said it would also welcome follow-up details from Secret Service members with Trump that day. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., cited Hutchinson's testimony that Trump wanted to join an angry mob of his supporters who marched on Jan. 6, 2021, to the Capitol, where they rioted, as particularly valuable in “inspiring” more people to step forward as the committee gets set for at least two public hearings this month.
