At least five of the activists aboard the 'Mavi Marmura' have links to terror organizations, the IDF announced on Sunday night.

The five were named as Fatima Mohammadi, Ken O'Keefe, Hassan Ansey, Hussein Orush and Ahmed Omemun. It was unclear whether the activists were specifically involved in the violent clashes with Navy commandos last week.

Specifically, the army said that O'Keefe, who tolds both US and UK passports, was trying to "reach Gaza in order to help Hamas."

The IDF also noted links to Viva Palestine, the IHH and al-Qaida.
