'Azzun 'Atma, Beit Furik, Habla, Kifl Harith, Za'tara (Tapuah), Tue 1.1.13, Afternoon
13:40 Habla gate. Nothing special; it closed exactly at 14:00. We drove from Huwwara to Beit Furiq; eveything’s deserted. We returned to the Huwwara checkpoint at 14:40; it was manned.
Inspections were conducted randomly, but vehicles selected were carefully checked.
15:20 Za’tara is manned, no inspections.
15:25 A Hummer stood at the entrance to Kifl Hars, a few soldiers alongside.
15:45 Azzun Atma – no congestion. Four soldiers walk along the fence to ensure that no one will sneak through a gap – God forbid. (We drove along the fence from the direction of Sha’arey Tiqva and saw about five gaps.)
