Egypt is trying to broker a broad cease-fire deal between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers that is to pave the way for Gaza's reconstruction and an eventual prisoner swap, senior Hamas officials said Thursday.

The Israeli navy seized a Swedish-flagged sailboat attempting to breach a blockade of the Palestinian Gaza Strip Saturday, the military said.

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.

Palestinian relatives of Moaath al-Souri, who was shot and killed by Israeli troops on Friday's ongoing protest at the Gaza Strip's border with Israel, mourn over his body at the family home during his funeral in Nuseirat refugee camp, central Gaza Strip, Saturday, July 28, 2018.

United Nations officials have called for the blockade to be lifted, citing deteriorating humanitarian conditions in the Palestinian enclave run by Hamas where 80 percent of the two million population are dependent on aid.

Meanwhile, the cancellation of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned visit to Colombia is believed to be related to the "developments in Gaza", according to Israeli media, which referred to speculation that he needs to be available due to the possibility that there might be a breakthrough in talks between the Tel Aviv administration and Palestinian sides.

Israel's security cabinet is set to convene on Sunday to discuss the arrangement in the Gaza Strip.

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.

On Friday, one Palestinian youth was killed and at least 220 others were injured during protests.

The organizer of the trip, the Swedish group Ship to Gaza, said the boat was carrying mainly medical supplies and maintained it was wrongly intercepted in worldwide waters.

Most of the Hamas leadership is based in Gaza but would be joined by exiled members of the group's political bureau, including Saleh Arouri, a founder of the Hamas military wing in the West Bank and a mastermind of violent attacks against Israelis in the past.
