Al-Ezariya, Container (Wadi Nar)
Al Ezariya was rather quiet today as was Wadi Nar. There was relatively little traffic and all vehicles proceeded with no difficulty. We saw no one detained. The new traffic circle has appreciably improved the mad confusion that was typical in the area of the kiosk. We noticed that all the lamp posts on the recently repaired road leading from the checkpoint back to Ezariya are equipped with solar panels.
As we have written several times before, bad incidents at Wadi Naar are rare indeed. This impression of ours is seconded by people with whom we have spoken in the area. Perhaps shifts at that site are no longer time effective.
