The Prime Minister's Office released an announcement saying the security cabinet has decided to ease the blockade on the Gaza Strip. This will include an increase in the kinds of building materials permitted into the Strip for buildings approved by the PA over which there is international surveillance. It was also decided to increase the operation of the border crossings to the Strip and to make the entry of aid workers more efficient.
At the same time, a list of forbidden items will be released including weapons and problematic dual-purpose materials. (Attila Somfalvi)
