6:55 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
There are no soldiers. Military furniture is scattered around along with other waste in the ditches. We entered the sleeve and strolled to the locked gates. A Captain from the DCO arrives. He does not know why the soldiers haven't shown up. "These are reserve soldiers and I have no control over them".
A young fellow and a car carrying three passengers are waiting. The Bank teller arrives as well, in his new car.
Six more people are waiting and another three cars. All are then joined by two students.
