Israel intercepts second Gaza-bound activist boat

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

Israel seizes Swedish activist ship in Gaza strip: The Israeli navy seized a Swedish-flagged sailboat attempting to breach a blockade of the Palestinian Gaza Strip on Saturday, the military said. Israel withdrew troops and settlers from Gaza in 2005 while keeping control of its coast and airspace.

At a meeting with representatives of the Palestinian Arab organizations in Gaza, "Hamas" leaders informed Palestinian factions about the latest discussions on the deal without offering any other explanations.

According to unconfirmed local media reports, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was to meet members of his security cabinet later Sunday to discuss a possible truce with Hamas.

The presidency's statement came in response to reported U.S. plans to dissolve the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in order to liquidate the refugee issue. The UN and Egypt have not publicly detailed the proposals.

Israel's Defence Ministry described the barrier as "an impenetrable breakwater".

A ministry spokesman was not immediately available to respond to a request for comment on the cable. "I will support any plan that includes establishing Egyptian infrastructure on land and sea for Gaza - under global supervision". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Israel and the United States designate Hamas as a terrorist organisation.

At least 159 Palestinians have been killed in border demonstrations that began at the end of March, while one Israeli soldier has been shot dead.

On Sunday, when the Israeli security cabinet convened to discuss the Gaza truce ideas, one member - Intelligence Minister Israel Katz - tweeted that these should include "bringing Egyptian infrastructure, at sea and on land, to bear for the good of Gaza, under worldwide supervision".

According to medical sources, one of the wounded was a boy.

Zuhri said that Fatah needs to realize that he lost the election for the Palestinian legislative Council in 2006 in the West Bank and the Gaza strip. They have spoken generally of a need to improve humanitarian conditions in Gaza.
