Anat Toeg, Dafna Shafir (reporting)


6:30 - 9:30
Sheikh Saed
Crossing is fast, no detentions.
We asked whether there were new guide-lines in the wake of the Ittamar events.  The answer was negative.
We continued via Silwan -- road works cause congestion but the asphalting of the road progresses, and there is no significant presence of police or army.
Abu Dis
The fence has been cleaned of graffiti!
We decided to continue straight to Wadi Nar
Wadi Nar
Here too we asked the soldiers about changes in guide-lines; the answer was negative.
There was one military policeman among the soldiers.
We did not observe any detention of vehicles.
