Morning

Hebron

No special events. Quiet, deserted and sad.

Route 60

Kvasim Junction: The jeep of a Captain George-like [a name that came up in association with some especially gruesome investigations some years ago] Shabak personality is standing there, stopping passers-by for random talks. People have almost no possibility of evading – no IDs are taken, but nor are you allowed to just pass by.

 

Shuyokh-Hebron Junction: the square's construction – funded with American money – is finished. How sad it is, though, that the sign pointing in the direction Hebron leads to a blocked route [see below], with the IDF making itself manifestly present.  Still, the route to Shuyokh and Sa'ir is open and that does make a difference, at least insofar as the children's passage is now much safer.

                    עדיין חסומה. הגיון אין חוץ מהצורך להקשות .‏תמונה: ‏וזאת הצומת מהצד
