09:45- 11:15 Riehan checkpoint

A Kiosk (!) has opened under the shed at the Palestinian car park.

There were relatively many drivers and many workers and merchants who work at East Barta'a. All of those arriving from the West Bank and the Seam Line zone, said the economic situation has worsened.

Four trucks loaded with vegetables waited in front of the vehicles inspection post and went in within 15 minutes. When we left, Hedva took a sick child and his parents to the Ram"bam Hospital.

I drove through East Barta'a. There are a lot of shoppers - perhaps Christian Arabs, Israeli residents who observe Christmas and the New Year.
