Hebron, South Hebron Hills, Wed 30.3.11, Morning
In accordance with our goal of visiting Hebron at different times of day, we only set out at 7:15 am.
Quite lively with traffic, near Dahariyya the man who sells pots seems to have got rid of his stock - hopefully someone bought it...
So too, the Kvasim Checkpoint and Bani Naim.
Silent, the pharmacy checkpoint was empty. Near Tarpat checkpoint a Givati soldier stopped us and demanded to know from whence we came, but soon released us. At Jewish Tel-Romeida a bored soldier checked the ids of passers by, but seemingly did not find any suspects.
Near the Patriarchs' tombs' Cave all was quiet and so was the Worshippers Alley, blocked for all eternity to its Palestinian neighbours.
An atmosphere of dread and sadness. Something has to give.
