PM: Easing restrictions allows Israel to focus on security

June 21, 2010 12:55

The decision to ease the civilian restrictions on Gaza enables Israel to focus on security-related issues, including the smuggling of weapons into the Strip, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said during an address to the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee (FADC) on Monday.

“The cabinet decision to lift the civilian blockade on Gaza and tighten the security blockade is the right decision for Israel, because it negates Hamas propaganda’s main claim,” the prime minister said.
