A few went through, no special problem.
09:10 - 10:10 Rihan checkpoint
A few drivers in the Palestinian car park area. The driver E. tells us that drivers come only in the morning and in the afternoon, when people go to work and when they return home.
People appeare to have cut short they mundane activities like going shopping,visits etc.
Passage time at the terminal for the few that have arrived, is 5-10 minutes.
We went back through East Barta'a. A butcher's shop owner said that the amount of sheep for meat allowed through the Rihan checkpoint is now limited and , as always, the same goes for eggs.
