GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Israeli ships ordered a boat of four fishermen to disembark Wednesday and detained the crew upon boarding, Ministry of Agriculture officials in Gaza said.

The ministry says three of the detainees are brothers, identified as Ahed, Nidal, and Ahmad Muhammad Abul Kheir. The fourth was identified as Muneer Sa’eed Al-Amoudy.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that naval patrols identified a fishing vessel "deviating from the fishing area" and called on the boat to turn back. When the boat failed to comply, she said it was captured and the crew taken for questioning.

All four were released on Thursday morning, she said.
