Swedish-flagged Flotilla Vessel Intercepted by Israel

 Swedish-flagged Flotilla Vessel Intercepted by Israel

In a separate development, Gaza's Health Ministry said a 15-year-old Palestinian died Saturday of wounds suffered from Israeli fire at a border protest the day before.

Since late March, thousands of Gaza residents have participated in frequent protests along Israel's perimeter fence, in part to try to break the blockade.

The Islamic Hamas movement, which runs the Gaza Strip, was considering accepting the terms of a long-term cease-fire with Israel, which was brokered by the United Nations envoy for Middle East peace and Egyptian officials in recent months, Israeli media reported.

The UN and human rights groups have appealed to Israel to end the siege on Gaza, which has had a devastating impact on the 2 million Palestinians living in the territory.

The Israeli military said the vessel, named "Freedom for Gaza", was "intercepted in accordance with worldwide law".

Giuliani Uses Weekend Of Mass Violence In Chicago To Slam Dem Mayor
Waller said the summer heat brings crowds out to the streets, particularly when violence has taken place. In at least one incident, shooters opened fire into a crowded street party, Waller said .

The breach comes amid another round of violent riots along the Israeli-Gaza border that have occurred nearly weekly for the past several months. Others, among them armed Hamas militants, have been killed in attempted border attacks or in Israeli airstrikes. He has said in the past that he would only resume responsibility for Gaza if Hamas agrees to hand over all authority there, including over security. The military said its soldiers sustained no casualties in the incident. Israeli troops fired tear gas and live rounds, wounding several protesters and a medic.

In addition to the threat of infiltration from Gaza by Hamas operatives, Israelis living in the south also face daily arson attacks via incendiary kites and balloons sent over the border. The boat and another vessel, which was intercepted by Israeli forces on Sunday, set sail to Gaza from Europe last week.

The organisers of the flotilla said the boat, which was carrying medical supplies, was intercepted in worldwide waters.

Birawi stressed that numerous activists rejected voluntarily deportation, preferring to delay it for more than 72 hours, the legal deadline for accepting voluntary deportation from the country, in order to appear before an Israeli court to expose the unjust practices of Israeli naval forces who attacked the humanitarian ship in global waters, and to later prosecute Israel for its actions.
