The Security Cabinet Wednesday decided to loosen even further the blockade of the Gaza Strip, and allow more exports out of the region.

Increasing exports from Gaza to improve the economic situation there has been a constant demand of numerous countries around the world over the last few months.

Cabinet Secretary Zvi Hauser issued a statement saying the decision was intended to increase economic activity in the Gaza Strip and "make things easier for the population in Gaza which is under a terrorist and oppressive Hamas regime."

The statement said that along with attempts to improve the economic situation in Gaza, Israel continues to call on the international community to continue its boycott of the Hamas government and abide by the Quartet principles whereby there will be no engagement with Hamas until the organization forswears terrorism, recognizes Israel and accepts previous Israeli-Palestinian agreements.
