Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who was reportedly surprised by a news report Sunday that the Government Press Office - a division of the Prime Minister's Office - had sent a letter to foreign journalists warning against covering the upcoming flotilla to Gaza from the boats themselves, essentially revoked the warning on Monday.

The Prime Minister's Office said in a statement that Netanyahu instructed the appropriate authorities "to formulate a special procedure regarding foreign journalists that participate in the flotilla." Additionally, the PMO announced that Israeli and international media will be allowed to cover the flotilla from Navy vessels.
