On the way back we entered Burin and talked with Munir about the olive picking. They have not yet picked the olives in the areas next Yitzhar settlement, they need army protection and at the DCO they tell them they have no manpower, all the forces are directed to Jerusalem. He says that if it rains all the crop will be lost.
