Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip are preparing for a "battle" to break the naval blockade on the coastal enclave, with a number of activities being planned in the coming weeks, informed sources told the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds on Wednesday. The sources added that the actions being planned by the factions would be similar to the "March of Return," a series of often violent demonstrations that took place along the Gaza border on a nearly weekly basis between March 2018 to December 2019. The report did not mention any specific actions planned.

In a recent address, Hamas's leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, claimed that Hamas was working with other parties to operate a maritime line to the Strip in order to bypass the Israeli blockade on the coastal enclave. Sinwar added that consultations and preparations on this issue are "in full swing" in order to "break the siege completely," but did not elaborate on how such a line would get past the Israeli blockade.
