Shlomit B., Ofra H. (reporting)

16:00 Antaba - The c
heckpoint is empty of soldiers.

16:10 Irtah
People flow in through the barrier without a check. They tell us that in the mornings crossing is  very hard and the CP is crowded. People are standing in line for several hours on their way to work.
They ask that we come at dawn.

On the way out of Irtah Nadim notices that a booth for selling cooking gas that used to be operated by a Palestinian trader on the Israeli side of the barrier has been destroyed.
