Empty.  Barbwire have been added to the roadblock car park.  We drove into Yatma and onto Road 60 to Jerusalem.

We didn't see a single roadblock on the way.  We got to Kalandia roadblock.

There we found some dozen cars.  As far as we could see they belonged to Israeli Arabs on their way to the Palestinian Authority territories.

We returned to Tel Aviv via Road 443.
