Israel will expand the Gaza Strip's fishing space to 15 nautical miles tomorrow and add 2,000 Israeli entry permits to Gaza residents, according to a statement released by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.
It was also reported that the decision was made "in light of the relative quiet of the Gaza Strip in recent days and the cessation of the launching of explosive balloons and after security consultations."
Last weekend, the fishing space was reduced and 500 traders were denied entry permits.
