The papers added that an Israeli drone fired a missile on Saturday at a group of Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border fence to the east of Jabalia town, in the northern Gaza Strip.

"Ship to Gaza demands that those who have been taken prisoner and the ship and its cargo are returned to the location where the ship was boarded and are allowed to continue their journey in worldwide and Palestinian waters unmolested, in accordance with global law", the group said in a statement.

Over the past four months, 158 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire, including at least 120 in the protests near the fence and others in Israeli air strikes and other incidents elsewhere in Gaza, according to the Gaza Health Ministry and a local rights group.

The protests have also seen Palestinians fly airborne incendiary devices toward Israeli territory, sparking hundreds of fires in southern Israel and causing millions of shekels in estimated damages.

The warning came amid unconfirmed reports that Israel and Hamas were close to reaching a long-term truce agreement.




Israel's defense minister has published a video of a sea obstacle Israel is building to prevent attacks from Gaza, the territory ruled by the Islamic militant group Hamas.

Israel says its naval blockade of Gaza is meant to prevent weapons from reaching militant groups, including Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Palestinian enclave.

The newspapers said that Israeli navy Saturday seized a Gaza-bound aid ship while in global sea water and steered it to the Israeli seaport of Asdod.

Israel and the United States designate Hamas as a terrorist organisation. The Trump administration's stated position is that Gaza should be under the control of Hamas's Western-backed Palestinian rivals.

The official statement after the meeting declared the military to be ready for "any scenario", but provided no indication that Israel was either favoring the ceasefire deal or the alternative, with Transportation Minister Israel Katz said was war. Ten activists aboard were killed at the time.
