Hebron, Sansana, South Hebron Hills, Sun 7.2.10, Morning
Translated by Naomi S.
The pressure at the CP is quite significant, as it always is on Sundays – a mix of laborers who wait to pass though, others who've already passed, vehicles, and prisoners' families' buses (two in all).
On our way to Hebron we got the impression that there are new caravans in the Estamo'ah stronghold (but we're not absolutely positive about this).
On the hill, right across the entrance to Kiryat Arba, we saw a new caravan, added onto the two temporary buildings already there. Hebron was very cold. We made a short tour by foot and didn't see anything worth reporting, apart from one child who sneaked into the Shouhada St. via a tiny window in the door put up for the handicapped child's wheelchair. It was really quite a creative shortcut, but the sight itself was rather depressing.
We went back via Tarquomiya.
On our way there were saw, on the paths leading to two Palestinian settlements whose names we don't know, that portable steel gates were put up. In general, military presence in the area was significant.
