Israel needs to consider substitutes to the embargo on Gaza in the aftermath of the Gaza flotilla incident, Welfare Minister Isaac Herzog (Labor) said at the opening of Sunday’s cabinet meeting. The minister said that while arms must be prevented from entering Gaza, the embargo which has been in place since 2006 needs to be reconsidered.

“We need to ease the population’s conditions and find security-sensitive, worthy alternatives to the embargo,” Herzog said. "We need to discuss the matter with friendly nations."
