Morning

 

09:30 We left in Nadim’s car from the Rosh Ha’Ayin train station. This time we constituted a “multitude”: Petahya, Rachel Afek and Riki also joined us on their way to Zeita.

 

10:00 The English class begins. A few new women attended; it’s beginning to be crowded. Today’s topic: the UN declaration on admitting Palestine as an observer. We taught many relevant words and concepts. Great excitement.

The class today lasted only for an hour and a half instead of two hours because we were late leaving Rosh Ha’Ayin.

 

10:00 Our circuit: we left Hars, drove through Kifl Hars and Qiriya, Zeita, Jama’in, Einabus. They’re all quiet, no military vehicles, life proceeds slowly.

 

10:40 Huwwara checkpoint: There’s a change. Concrete blocks have been placed around the guard tower and the surrounding plaza has been expanded. What does that mean? We should follow up. This week as well a soldier was seen sitting with his weapon at the bus stop leading to the Beracha settlement. Soldiers get out of a jeep and set up a flying checkpoint at the Yitzhar junction. They stop a Palestinian vehicle, inspect it inside and out.

A military jeep stands next to the parking lot at the Tapuach junction. We see no soldiers.

 

11:30 Back to Hars, and from there to Rosh Ha’Ayin.
