Israel has further loosened restrictions on goods and materials entering the Gaza Strip, Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinian territories said, after hundreds of Palestinians gathered on Wednesday to protest the tight blockade.  

Beginning Thursday, an additional 1,000 Palestinian workers can enter Israel from the coastal enclave, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) said. Permits will only be given to those who are fully vaccinated or who have recovered from the virus.
