06:50 AM, Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300: two windows are open, the passage is functioning very well. The Palestinians ask why it is not like this every day.
08:00 AM, Etzion DCL: a notice in Hebrew on the door announces that today there is no renewal of magnetic cards; something is wrong with the machine. The people who according to the division per villages and towns were to receive service will get this on Monday next week. Thus said the soldier at the window, after inquiring with the officer.
We did the rounds on the beautiful road that descends into the Emek Ha’elah. At the Geva’oth crossroads we met a Palestinian car. The checkpoint on the dirt road to Nachalin and from there to Hussan blocks the entry. According to the driver there is a checkpoint that is closed at night between Ghaba’ah to Tsorif. Ghaba’ah is a small village and it has no doctor, and at night, when medical assistance is needed, there is no way to get to the doctor in Tsorif.
08:30 AM, Beit Ummar: in this site we have no clients today.
09:00 AM, Nabi Yunis: in this site we have no clients today.
It was a short watch today.
