0630 - A'aneen checkpoint
A wintry, rainy morning. The site is almost deserted. Soldiers apparently are sheltered inside the Hammer.
The Bedouin children get into their transportation, their school bags are covered in plastic shopping bags, umbrellas over their heads.
Occasionally residents of A'aneen come out of the checkpoint, going into the Seam Line zone.One of them is a veterinarian. We drove him to his clinic at Um-el-Reihan. He is very proud of his profession and prefers to work here and not in Jenin. He somehow makes a living. He has a big sign in Arabic and in Hebrew, which regrettably is not so legible. We did not know how to bring it to his attention, maybe next time.
0705 - Shaked checkpoint
The teacher arrives in his old car. Earlier at Um-el-Rihan we watched people helping him start the car by pushing it. The driver and his passengers hurry up to the inspection area, return to the car and drive on to Ya'abed or to Jenin.
0700 Reihan checkpoint
The car park area fills up with Palestinians vehicles. About six vehicles loaded with produce wait to get into the vehicles' inspection area.
0720 - The bridge checkpoint opposite Zbeida
We've scared Ateff out of his bed at Zbeida. (ever since he has no car he is unemployed) We brought his some clothing bags.
A car owner with swollen face and limbs said that he suffers from renal failure and wishes to get medical care in Israel. Is there a way for us to help him?
