Morning
06:50 Sheikh Saed

 
Quiet at the checkpoint, few people, crossing unimpeded.

 
07:30 Zeitim Crossing

 
We entered into the Palestinian side, then crossed back.  Two corridors open, and crossing flows.

 
08:00 Wadi Nar

 
Here too traffic flows.  Random checks of vehicles, but no significant delays were observed.  The officer, A., was attentive (at least while we were there), and occasionally urged the soldiers to speed up the checks.  As in the past few months, there was a fairly large number of soldiers (border and military police) manning the checkpoint.
