    Israel eases embargo on food and drink allowed into Gaza - Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

    I wonder what's the basis for choosing which products to allow. The list looks like what we'd consider snacks. In my understanding, the current embargo doesn't allow much for movement of more important items like medicine, basic foods, etc.

    Is this "easing" really unrelated to the May 31 incident and the timing was mainly because Obama was meeting Mahmoud Abbas in Washington?
