Israel announces Gaza sanctions in response to cross-border blazes

"The vessel was seized without incident", announced the IDF in a subsequent statement.

"After the boat and the Palestinians on board are searched, the boat will be towed to the Israeli navy base in Ashdod", Israel's military said in a statement.

IDF medics provided treatment to the injured people on board the vessel, the army said.

As JewishPress.com reported yesterday, Israel has announced it was closing the Kerem Shalom crossing into the Gaza Strip, in response to the incessant arson terror attacks against southern Israel emanating from the enclave.

Hamas won 2006 legislative elections and effectively booted the Palestinian Authority (PA) from power in Gaza in the wake of an armed conflict with Fatah, the leading party of the PA, after the latter rejected the election results. "I will not go into details", he added.

The passengers "with specific needs are prevented from traveling, receiving care and finishing their studies", said organizer Raed Abu Dair. "We are determined to break the blockade".

Lieberman said Israel did not seek a new Gaza flare-up.

According to the Israeli military, the naval blockade is "a necessary and legal security measure" to protect its Israeli citizens "in the face of terror and smuggling weapons".

Human rights groups have accused Israeli troops of using excessive force.

The blockade, coupled with three devastating wars since 2009, has impacted Palestinians' livelihoods in Gaza - as high unemployment, barely existent power and water-treatment infrastructure, loss of agricultural lands and war-related trauma led the United Nations to warn in 2015 that Gaza would become "unliveable" by 2020.

"Hamas urges the worldwide community to immediately intervene", said Fawzi Barhoum, spokesman for Hamas, which is deemed a terrorist group by Israel and the West.

Palestinian Hamas police on boats prepare the Gaza seaport for fishing boats to attempt to sail for Europe carrying people including students and medical patients unable to leave through overland crossings, as a protest against the Israeli blockade on Gaza, Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

Israel's navy seized a boat on Tuesday that had left from a Gaza port with wounded Palestinians aboard in a bid to challenge the blockade of the Hamas-run enclave.

It was the second humanitarian flotilla to set out from Gaza since Palestinians first began holding rallies along the Gaza-Israel security fence on March 30.
