Afternoon

 

 

15:15 Anin checkpoint

7 persons and two tractors wait by the checkpoint's closed gate, on their way to the village.

 

At 15:20 the soldiers arrive, apologizing for being late. They immediately open the gate and allow people through.

 

15:40 Shaked-Tura checkpoint

 Youngsters and families return in their vehicles from Jenin and Tura into the Seam Line zone. Children on their vacation return home, apparently after spending time in Tura.

From the Seam Line zone, workers who arrive in an organized transportation from their various employment sites are returning to the West Bank.

 

16:00  I hear yelling from inside the checkpoint. It turns out that one man who had returned from the West Bank was delayed because the soldiers were busy playing games on their smartphones. He was yelling,"Why don't you take into consideration the Ramadan fasting?". At the end of the long fast people hurry home.

 

16:10 Men and women cross on both sides, apparently on Ramadan-related family visits .

Workers return from their daily work in Israel and at the Seam Line zone.

Those who have gone through Yirtach in the morning, said that it was crowded and only 6 windows were open.
