Israel's navy today intercepted a Norwegian-flagged activist boat trying to break its more than decade-long blockade of the Gaza Strip, the military and activists said.
"The activity ended without exceptional events," a military statement said.
"At this time the ship is being transferred to the port of Ashdod" along the coast of central Israel.
An activist group affiliated with the boat, the Al-Awda (The Return), said 22 people and a cargo of medical supplies were onboard.
