Hebron, South Hebron Hills, Wed 2.9.09, Morning
We noticed a marked presence of policemen in Kiryat Arba, probably due to the first day of school.
Within the city itself, there were more Border Police soldiers than usual, positions in additional positions to the regular CPs.
Pharmacy CP: new mortar blocks and new fencing all round. There were also more human rights volunteers than usual - TIP and CPT.
Tel Rumeida CP: the parachutists are inspecting school bags.
We were pleased to note the unusually high percentage of Palestinian cars on the road. Not at all to be taken for granted.
