06:10  Ya'abed-

Dotan checkpoint.  The site is wide open for passage.


06:20 Barta'a-Rihan checkpoint

12 pickup truck await inspection. There is nothing else on site. A hungry dog begs for food. Workers begin to show up. They cross over running and there are some who return from a night's shift.

A man comes out of the sleeveinfo-icon. We had followed him to check passage time. 16 minutes. He does not complain but says :"WE need no checkpoints".

A group of workers who sit under the new shed, enjoy a brief rest and a cigarette.  Ruti recommends quitting,  to no avail.


07:30   We leave.
