Ramadan. We left at nine o’clock. The settlers’ youth are on a break, as well, and they amuse themselves riding around on wagons bridled to donkeys, and as noted by our driver M., the writings on the wagons are in Arabic. M. also showed us the checkpoint behind “Biet Hameriva” (The Contention House), which has become a fortified zone, with a soldier on the building’s roof, surrounded by barbed wire and concrete barricades. A family arrived by car to the checkpoint. A child stepped down with a green ID in his hand and headed to the building. The soldier descended from the roof, checked, and opened the barrier.

This is what we saw.
