Israel has amended the list of items, including weaponry and what it calls dual-use products, banned from entering Gaza. The list replaces a much longer document that detailed civilian goods that were allowed to be brought into Gaza.

The restrictions on civilian goods have been largely rescinded due to international pressure after Israel's deadly May 31st raid on an aid flotilla in which nine people were killed.

Israeli officials say the new regulations are meant to allow more civilian goods to Gaza, while keeping out many raw construction items which Israeli officials say can be used for armament production, military structures construction and tunnels.
