7:00  Sheikh Saed

Border policemen sitting apart in the shade.  Crossing is quiet.
At 7:05 security personnel arrive and occupy the booth, speaking Arabic amongst themselves.

Wadi Nar

We drove through Al-Ezariya and Abu Dis.  All was quiet, and we did not notice any presence of security forces.
The checkpoint too was quiet.
On our way home we saw that the infrastructure on the western hill for the New Kedar was progressing.
