Israel is releasing a list of goods it will continue to ban from the Gaza Strip after easing its land blockade of the territory.
The decision comes on the eve of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's White House visit this week.
Officials say Israel will still largely restrict desperately needed construction materials and other items that could have military uses.
However, they say Israel will authorize these items for use in international projects.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the list is not to be released until later Monday.
Israel has been under intense international pressure to loosen its three-year embargo on Gaza since Israeli commandos killed nine activists in a May 31 raid on a blockade-busting flotilla.
Let's see if all of this comes to play.
