On June 17, Haaretz writer Barak Ravid and Reuters headlined, "Israel to ease Gaza land blockade," saying:
"Israel's security cabinet voted Thursday to ease its land blockade of the Gaza Strip, following its deadly raid on a humanitarian aid flotilla bound for the (mischaracterized) Hamas-ruled territory," in fact, its legitimate government.
An official statement said:
"The Security Cabinet conducted an extensive discussion over the last two days regarding adjustments in Israel's Gaza policy.
It was agreed to:
-- Liberalize the system by which civilian goods enter Gaza.
-- Expand the inflow of materials for civilian projects that are under international supervision.
