Israel and Egypt have come to an understanding by which ships taking part in an upcoming flotilla to the Gaza Strip will be allowed to unload their cargo of humanitarian goods at the Egyptian port of El-Arish, from where it will be transferred on land to Gaza after being checked, Israel Radio reported on Monday.

The government has declared that the flotilla will not be allowed to enter Gaza, but will rather – if necessary – be towed into Ashdod Port and the equipment on the ships impounded.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu convened his security cabinet for briefings from top naval officials and security officials on the Gaza-bound flotilla on Sunday evening. The security cabinet was scheduled to reconvene on Monday morning to further discuss the flotilla.
