Afternoon

Translation: Hanna K.

14:05 Azzun Atma –
There are no people or cars waiting to enter or leave. Some time later a young couple arrives at the entrance and passes certificate control while a few children stand near the line that was allotted to them and wait for their turn.

14:55 The Samaria gate is open, the traffic passes without delays.

Furthermore, the agricultural gate is open, as well as the entrance to Marda.
The blocking of Zeita grew and increased in size, making the passage difficult for pedestrians too.

At the ZA'tara/Tapuah intersection  there are many cars which pass quickly.

15:30 Huwwara CP –
There is little entering traffic. There is a short random checkinginfo-icon of vehicles leaving Nablus, but a meticulous checking of the passengers documents (especially the female ones ) in a bus that is detained on the side. After over ten minutes it is released.

The Barrels CP (Deir Sharaf) –
Many cars enter in the direction of Nablus without delay, we didn't see any cars with Israeli number plates. At the exit one car is delayed for a long time, the driver is outside of the car. All the other cars pass, the checking is at random and superficial. In the end the detained car is released as well.

16:35 Anabta – The CP is manned, vehicles pass without restriction.
