13.20 Habla. A tractor with agricultural implements which the Palestinians had bought from an Israeli arrived. On the equipment bicycles which the Israeli had given them were placed. The Israeli arrived with the bicycles but the soldiers were adamant that they were not going to let the bicyles pass, only the agricultural equipment. The Israeli tried to interfere and implored the soldiers but to no avail. We tried to interfered as well but the answer was – we do not talk to you. In the end the Palestinian removed the bicyles and put them behind the shed, and said he would come later, and then they were permitted to pass the tractor with the agricultural equipment.

14.10 Azzun – A few soldiers stood at the entrance to the village, and about a hundred meters from there, northwards, there were two jeeps, from which soldiers descended, went in the direction of the olive plantations and began walking about there.

14.35 Burin – A border police jeep stands at the southern entrance opposite Yitzhar, and another jeep goes up to the post on the hill, opposite the school of Bourin. We talked with Mounir. He told us that two days ago inhabitants of Bourin went to plought their fields, and then settlers from Beraha came down and began interfering in their work and felled 74 of their olive trees. They do this on purpose so that the residents should attack them and then the army will interfere and will say – we let them work their fields and they attack Jews (pitiable ones).  The army declared immediately that the area was a closed military area, and this went on for two days.

 

Huwwara, Beit Furik – There was nothing special.

15.45 Za'tara/Tapuah – The CP is manned, and so is the bus station.

15.50 Three soldiers with drawn rifles stood at the hitch-hikers station near the square of Ariel .

16.00 Haris Junction – There is a military van and about ten soldiers standing near it.
