Jerusalem - The Israeli military says naval forces boarded a cargo ship off the coast that had been set on fire.

The military says it was alerted early Sunday to an anchored ship off northern Israel which was anchored 9 km. off the coast of Haifa whose hull was ablaze.

At the request of the ship’s captain, Israeli forces boarded and searched the ship. Hours later, the military said it apprehended a hidden passenger and transferred him to police for questioning.

Local media say the ship was making its way from Turkey to an Israeli port and that a stowaway tried to set the vessel ablaze, causing damage. The ship was said to have sailed under a Panamanian flag.

The military says the incident is over and would provide no further details.
