 dawn shift

The CP was opened at 04:00. The passage is smooth.
From time to time the turnstiles are shut for a few minutes. Probably in order to regulate the passage.
Two Human Rights activists from abroad are on the Palestinian side and count the incoming persons with a manual counting device.
Until we left about 3200 entering persons were counted, and about 700 were still outside waiting.
The fence has been mended and shortened.
About 6 checking posts were open at the exit.
The workers express satisfaction. We didn't receive any complaint.
At about 06:00 we left.
