Fatah was accused of trying to disrupt the truce with Israel

Fatah was accused of trying to disrupt the truce with Israel”

But some Egyptian officials say they would resist any attempt by Israel, or its United States ally, to shift to Cairo the onus for addressing Gaza's long-term governance or economic problems. Hamas and other resistance groups have linked their fate to Israel freeing Palestinian security detainees.

Asked if Elkin's comments reflected Netanyahu government policy, an Israeli official close to the prime minister declined comment.

There are more than 4000 fishers and around 700 boats in the Gaza Strip providing livelihood to at least 70.000 Palestinians, while the Israeli military and navy keep attacking them, kidnapping them and confiscating their boats, in addition to the dozens of casualties, including fatalities, resulting from these violations.

Israel's Security Cabinet discussed the pros and cons of a deal with Hamas for several hours, but the Times of Israel reports they didn't reach a conclusion and did not conduct a vote.

In recent weeks, Palestinian activists have been flying flaming kites and balloons over Israeli territory as part of ongoing anti-occupation protests along Gaza border.

On Sunday an Israeli diplomatic source said: "There will be no long-term agreement with Hamas that excludes a solution to the issue of the return of our fallen soldiers held in the Gaza Strip".

But Egyptian officials have privately voiced worry about Israeli calls for them to be more involved in Gaza, proposals that they think may dovetail with the Trump administration's efforts to address Palestinian grievances with pan-Arab help.

Israel insists its blockade is necessary to isolate Gaza's Islamist Hamas rulers, with which it has fought three wars since 2008.

"(A deal would bring about a) separation of Gaza from the rest of the homeland and would create a mini-state which will be the graveyard of our national project", said Munir Al-Ghaghoub, a spokesman for Abbas's Fatah movement. Twenty-four of slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.

Israel's Defence Ministry released first images of the barrier it has built along the border with the Gaza Strip that stretches into the sea, and which it began constructing two months ago. Two other IDF soldiers also died in the incident.
