Palestinian media initially reported that the deceased was a fisherman who drowned when he fell off his boat.

Israel news outlet Walla named the commando as Hamdi al-Sultan, adding that he died while carrying out a ‘jihadi mission.’

The IDF does not comment on incidents that occur outside of Israeli territory.

In September, Hamas announced that another member of its naval commando unit drowned in a training accident off Gaza.
