'Azzun 'Atma, Habla
5.50 Azzun Atma. The second day of the Id Il Fitr holiday. Therefore there is only a small number of people going to work. At the moment at the checkpoint 5 people are arriving all the time in drips and drabs. There is one person checking. The checkpoint is empty. We see that the wall inclosing the village up to road 505 is on both sides. It seems that they will have to move the road.
Habla. 7.00 Only a few people arriving. Just a trickle. Some cars and a cart with a horse are waiting to cross. One of the workers comes up to us and asks for help. One of his sons had a permit to go out to work through Habla and has been moved to gate 109. Nura promises to deal with it. One of the other sons had his permit taken from him for no reason. We told him to speak to Sylvia.
On road 55 next to the entrance to Izbet Tabiv is an army car at the side of the road. On the way back the car is no longer there.
The gate to Azzun was once open but we are told that it often closes.
