'Anin, Barta'a-Reihan, Tura-Shaked
6:30 – Anin
The gate is open but farmers' passage begins only at 06:40. More than 40 people wait to cross but by 07:00 only 30 had gone through, as well as four tractors. Nine individuals are sent back because their passage permits have expired and they are unable to renew it. We are told that they turned to the DCO but were denied because the land is not registered in their names.
We left at 07:00, when not everyone has yet come out or was sent back.

7:40 Barta'a-Reihan checkpoint
Many people go up the sleeve, which is rather unusual for this time of day. A group of construction workers at Harish wait for their driver. They say that today everyone had to go through the X-Ray machine which is very slow, and at times a person has to go through it several times. They stayed inside for 40 minutes thus missed the early transportation and had lost an hour of work.
Inside the terminal there are still many people . Two windows are open.
