Israel Seizes Swedish Activist Ship Bound For Gaza

A masked Palestinian launches a balloon loaded with flammable materials to be flown toward Israel at the Israel Gaza border in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip

For over three months, there have been near-weekly, violent protests along the Israel-Gaza border organized by Gaza's Hamas rulers, leading to the most serious escalation between the two sides since the 2014 war.

Israel has not publicly responded to the report, although speculation has grown in Israel after an announcement last week that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would cancel his upcoming trip to Colombia for the inauguration of the new president there.

An unnamed Israeli official said Sunday that there might be talks focusing on a proposal to ease the blockade of Gaza if the Palestinians calm their side of the fence that separates the occupied territories from the blockaded coastal sliver.

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.

The United Nations and Egypt are now trying to secure a deal between Israel and Hamas for a lasting truce to bring quiet to the border and ease tensions in the impoverished Palestinian enclave.

The Tel Aviv regime may agree to a limited ceasefire with Palestinian resistance groups in the besieged Gaza Strip, Israeli officials have hinted. Twenty-four of slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.

A Palestinian teen on Sunday night was announced dead due to wounds he sustained on the first Friday of the Great Return March on the Gaza border, which began on 30 March. Hamas has acknowledged that dozens of those killed were its members.

Israel chose to erect a sea barrier in 2014, when several Hamas gunmen tried to enter Israel by sea but were shot dead by soldiers.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed in a statement that an aircraft fired at the group in the northern Gaza Strip.

The protests have been marked by clashes as some protesters hurl stones at Israeli soldiers and attempt to breach the border fence, at times laying explosive devices on the fence and using incendiary kites to set ablaze Israeli fields, torching extensive patches of agricultural land near the border.
