Improvised explosives, knives, machetes, catapults and gas masks were among the cache allegedly retrieved from the six-strong fleet which was stormed on Monday.
The images were released by the Israel Defence Forces, who claim the weapons were used against navy personnel when they boarded the ship.

British families today faced an agonising wait for news after it emerged 40 UK activists had been detained during Israel’s bloody commando raid.
As the UN Security Council condemned the attack and called for an ‘impartial’ investigation, the Foreign Office confirmed that at least one Brit had been injured during the assault.
Consulate officials are ‘urgently’ trying to establish the exact number of Britons being held and are seeking immediate access to them.
