Israel Says Eased Some Restrictions on Gaza

According to an Israeli official, Israel would renew the delivery of fuel to Gaza (halted on June 25), expand the fishing zone around the Gaza Strip to 15 nautical miles (28 kilometres) and return confiscated Palestinian fishing boats, Haaretz reported.

Earlier in the day, Hamas officials said Egypt and the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov managed to defuse tension between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip and urged the two sides to be committed to cease-fire understandings.

Three Palestinians were wounded in Friday's clashes, the witnesses added.

Meanwhile, Zakareya Bakker, head of the fishermen committees in Gaza, said Israel expanded the fishing area after it reduced it last week.
