11:45 Gate 1392, Habla Agricultural Gate
We arrive to find the gate
closed, waited awhile, but still no one arrives to open it. We stop
by the nursery to inquire and find out that the army has changed the
hours to accommodate the Bedouin children who return from school on
the bus only at 12:30.

11:45 Ras Atiya
We drive
to Ras Atiya, but find the new barrier completed and completely
closed. No on can pass. Down the security road we see two soldiers
sitting and trucks coming out and traveling up the road.

15:00
Anabta

Vehicles lined up from both sides, moving slowly, a
back up of about 7 vehicles at both sides.

15:15 Sha'ar Efraim
A constant flow of people returning home, but no
lines or waiting, although only 2 booths are open, several
Palestinians tell us we should have been there in the morning.
