A 25-year-old Palestinian was killed and 220 others wounded during the clashes on the Gaza Strip border, the Israeli media quoted the Gaza Health Ministry as saying.

According to a press release from the administration of the Rafah border crossing, an Arouri-led delegation including leading group members Mousa Abu Marzouk, Izzat al Rishq and Hussam Badran crossed the border into the Gaza Strip.

At least 156 Palestinians have been killed since March 30, when Palestinians in the Gaza Strip began holding nearly daily protests near the buffer zone. Israel and Egypt imposed the blockade after the Islamic militant Hamas overran the territory in 2007.

Over four months of weekly Friday border protests that began on March 30 have reduced in intensity lately but organisers have vowed they would continue until Israel lifts economic sanctions on the coastal enclave.

Israel has lost tracts of farmland and forests to fires set by kites and helium balloons laden with incendiary material and flown over from Gaza.

The military said both vessels were taken to an Israeli port without incident.

Palestinian medics carry a wounded man during clashes with Israeli troops on the Gaza-Israel border, east of Gaza City, on August 3, 2018.

Pappas worked for 30 years as a constable, according to Texas Commission on Law Enforcement records. Acevedo told reporters that evidence indicated Pappas put a lot of planning into the alleged crime.

It said a tank fired at a Hamas military post in Gaza after Palestinians briefly crossed the frontier and threw bombs. Several of the exiled leaders attended the border protests Friday.

The coalition said Friday that the Swedish-flagged vessel, Freedom, was almost 60 miles (95 kilometers) off the coast.

Netanyahu will convene his security cabinet on Sunday to discuss an emerging deal, brokered by the United Nations and Egypt, for long-term peace in Gaza, a second Israeli official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

"The ship was monitored and was intercepted in accordance with worldwide law", the Israeli military claimed.

"The delegation will (consult). over issues of concern for the Palestinian people, foremost in achieving the national reconciliation and ending the Gaza blockade", Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said before the delegation arrived.

According to the IDF, a number "of suspects infiltrated Israel from the southern Gaza Strip, hurled firebombs and an explosive device in the border fence area, and then returned into the Gaza Strip".
