Israel has intercepted a ship carrying Iranian weapons to Gaza, Israeli defence officials say.

The Panamanian-flagged vessel was boarded by Israeli special naval forces in the Red Sea on Wednesday, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) said.

Israel says it found rockets on board, and that it was now taking the ship back to Israeli shores.

There has not yet been any comment on the incident from Hamas, who govern the Gaza Strip.
