The Trump administration's stated position is that Gaza should be under the control of Hamas's Western-backed Palestinian rivals.

The UN and Egypt are now trying to secure a deal between Israel and Hamas for a lasting truce.

A Palestinian shot by Israeli forces on the Gaza border four months ago has died, the health ministry in the coastal enclave has said.

The Israeli navy seized a Swedish-flagged sailboat carrying food and medical supplies for Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip on Saturday, the military said.

Hamas leaders have been meeting in Gaza over the weekend but no details of their talks have emerged.

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.

The White House said on June 21 that it had discussed with Egypt "the need to facilitate humanitarian relief to Gaza".

Gaza has seen a surge in tensions since Palestinians launched weekly protests along the fence.

Israel says its naval blockade of Gaza is meant to prevent weapons from reaching militant groups, including Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls the Palestinian enclave. It offered to reverse the measures on Sunday.

Al-Jaghoub said that his movement had warned the Palestinians and their factions regarding "the conspiracies being plotted against them represented by the "deal of the century".

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri accused Fatah of inciting to thwart the efforts of Egypt and the United Nations to achieve a ceasefire between Israel. Palestinian protesters demand the right to return for those driven out of their homeland.

The Gaza clashes reached their peak on May 14, on the eve of the 70th anniversary of Nakba Day (Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with Washington's embassy relocation from Tel Aviv to occupied East Al-Quds (Jerusalem).

At least 159 Palestinians have been killed in border demonstrations that began at the end of March, while one Israeli soldier has been shot dead.
