One-boat flotilla carrying weapons bound for Gaza intercepted by Israel

Israel 'intercepts weapons boat' in Dead Sea

Israeli authorities say they have seized a boat carrying arms in the Dead Sea and are questioning two Palestinians who were on the vessel.

The boat was carrying assault rifles, ammunition and other weapons, according to an Israeli military statement.

AFP news agency quoted the military as saying the weapons were being transported from Jordan to the Palestinian territories.

It said that ship, which was seized in international waters, was carrying weapons meant for militant groups that were to be delivered via Egypt.
