But late Monday Chiang Rai provincial governor broke the news of their rescue by naval divers, delighting a nation which has anxiously followed every twist and turn of the dramatic effort to save them.

"If you asked me if they are, I would say we have hope".

Narongsak said that an operations center has been set up in the third chamber, about 1.7 kilometers (a mile) from entrance to the cave.

The boys, who range in ages from 11 to 16 years old and are all members of the Wild Boar soccer team, entered the Tham Luang Nang Non cave system on Saturday, June 23, for a team outing, but became stranded in the dark tunnels by a sudden and continuous downpour.

Despite the tireless effort and worldwide assistance, there has been no contact with the group since they were reported missing, and monsoon rains have complicated the rescue by blocking passageways.

Osottanakorn said the rescuers had managed to reach Pattaya Beach and found that it was also flooded.

"The Royal Thai Government and the Thai people are grateful for this support and cooperation, and we all wish the team a safe and speedy recovery", Mr Prayuth's office said in a statement.

Relatives of the boys took shelter from heavy rain on Monday and were seen cheering, smiling and receiving calls after hearing the news.

It also reported that Gaza youths have invented flaming balloons which they could fly into Gaza periphery settlements. Abdullah reportedly said that unveiling the plan without coordinating with the Palestinians would be a "catastrophe".

She said she would cook her son a Thai fried omelette, his favourite food, when he returns home.

Divers have been stymied again and again by rising water that has filled sections of the cave and forced them to withdraw for safety reasons.

A rescue team that included Thai Navy SEALs entered a narrow passageway early on Monday after passing through a flooded chamber on Sunday that was previously blocking their progress. Other efforts have focused on finding shafts on the mountainside that might serve as a back door to the blocked-off areas.

Pumping water out of the cave has not solved the problem, so other teams have been looking to divert groundwater.

Dive teams are working around the clock, including the Thai Navy SEALs and experts from the US, China, Australia and the UK. Rescuers explore several options, including training them to use scuba equipment.

Last week, a team from the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, including survival specialists, were flown in from Okinawa to help with the search.

Doctors adept at diving have since arrived on the scene, aiming to "stabilize" the boys before the final steps of the rescue can take place, journalist Tim Newton told CNN.
