Israel approves new list of goods banned from Gaza
Israel's government has drawn up a new list of items banned from Gaza.
It says the new list will allow practically all non-military items to enter Gaza freely. It only bans weapons and materials deemed to have military uses. For the past three years, Israel has allowed only basic humanitarian supplies in.
Israel decided to ease the blockade under intense international pressure after its raid on a blockade-busting
international flotilla bound for Gaza killed nine pro-Palestinian activists.
