There were niether people nor vehicles. During the hour and a half of our stay on site only one person arrive, and two cars.

Traffic of only merchants from Barta'a. The first trucks with vegetables that went into inspection came out in less than an hour and drove in the direction of East and West Barta'a.
Drivers set idle.
We met a youngster, a resident of East Barta'a who is married to a woman from West Barta'a and they have small children. The fellow wants to go with his wife and kids to visit relatives in the West bank. He is unable to travel in Israeli the roads to the Jalama checkpoint while she , an Israeli citizen, is unable to cross over at the Rihan checkpoint. The fellow had asked to allow his wife and small children to cross, together with him., the Rihan checkpoint.
His request was not answered.
