Hebron, South Hebron Hills, Sun 17.7.11, Morning

Shachar, Yael Z. (reports)


The checkpoint is empty, some last cars belonging to employers were waiting on the Israeli side of the parking lot. One bus of prisoners’ families was waiting there too, apparently waiting till they are all checked.

Route 60

All checkpoints were open for vehicles. No military presence was evidenced in any of them.

At the entry to Beni Na'im there is a line consisting of some military cars and a bunch of soldiers outside. On our way back they were no longer there.


Very quiet. All checkpoints are empty and the Shimshon brigade soldiers, manning them, appeared bored and workless.

Route 365

The road is empty. Only at the entry to the settlement Carmel we saw a jeep parking and observing the deserted highway.
