A Vietnamese fisherman claimed that China Coast Guard vessel 4201 fired a water cannon at him and his crew on Monday, resulting in two fishermen being injured.

The aggressive encounter, occurring in the highly-contested waters of the South China Sea, reportedly resulted in injuries, including a broken arm for the fisherman, according to Newsweek. The incident sheds light on the escalating tensions in the region regarding overlapping territorial claims.

The waters, lying east of Vietnam and south of China, have long been a source of contention between the two nations due to their competing claims to the Paracel Islands.
