5:55  Anin checkpoint  

The checkpoint's gate is open on the side of the Seam Line zone, which spreads to a large open field of dry land, up to the main gate where inspection takes place.

A vehicle with a representative of the DCO and another military vehicle with 3 soldiers arrived to let through just two tractors and 11 individuals. People do have passage permits and new ones are not being issued.


6:20 Barta'a-Rihan checkpoint   

Many cars are  at the upper car park, waiting to pick up workers, a large number of whom had already gone to work. Some of those coming out of the sleeveinfo-icon complain of delays and indeed we meet the seamstresses, who usually come out of the sleeve at a much earlier time.

There is crowed at the entrance to the terminal but two windows are open and the pace of people coming out is reasonable.


We're under the impression that despite various current events the checkpoint functions as usual.


6:45 There is no more crowding by the entrance.


6:58  Shaked-Tura  

We meet two soldiers returning to their camp – They had forgotten the keys and the checkpoint is still closed. The waste container is not full but garbage is spread all around.


7:13  - The gate opens, The first one  leaves towards the Seam Line zone at 7:22.

Cars on both sides begin crossing at 7:20.

Passage time is reasonable. We did not observe any special problems.
