JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel's decision to loosen its blockade on Gaza is drawing both praise and criticism.
Israel's security Cabinet on Sunday voted to ease land-based civilian imports to the Gaza Strip; the naval blockade will remain in place.
The move garnered praise from the White House, which released a statement Sunday saying it welcomed the new policy toward Gaza.
