Following the rain and the cold, the almond trees are already blooming and they do not hide the election posters of Feiglin.

06:30 Azzun Atma: The overpopulated queue reaches "only" the edge of the fenced-in zone. The workmen complain that they had to wait for a long time in the queue. Some of them left the Hebronarea at dawn and came to work in the juncture area. Others told us that they were detained for a long time at the entrance to the village, and only the intervention of a high-rank officer who arrived on the spot urged the soldiers on. Did anybody get an explanation why it is necessary to check with such meticulousness at the entrance to the village? How does this protect Israel's security?

06:40 A lively traffic of pedestrians on the road leading to the agricultural gate.

06:42 Shomron crossing:There is no police at the exit from Israel.

06:55 Za'tara/Tapuah: there are no soldiers at the checking posts

Yitzhar/Burin CPs:  There is no military activity.

07:30 Beit Furik: At the entrance to the village there is no flying CP.  At the "permanent" Beit Furik CP too there is no military activity.

Awarta: The yellow arm still prevents the passage.

07:40 at the Huwwara CPwe didn't see any soldiers. We tried to inquire whether there were soldiers on the tower - we didn't hear a generator and only the emergency lighting is on. The soldier standing on the road to Beraha settlement said that he assumed that there were soldiers there. We didn't see any soldier at the post opposite the hitch hikers' station.

Burin/Yitzhar: A military vehicles at the bay coming down from Yitzhar causes a delay in the traffic. It is a kind of flying CP.

08:00Za'tara /Tapuah: There are no soldiers at the post.

At the Shomron crossing  the checking is as usual superficial.
