'Anata-Shu'afat, Al-Ezariya, Container (Wadi Nar)
There was a huge backup of vehicles passing into the Palestinian side while traffic into Jerusalem progressed unimpeded. It appeared that there was a close check of all vehicles going east.
Apparently the dreadful garbage heap near the checkpoint is the beginning of what is meant to be an extensive dumping area that will stretch several kilometers along Route 1, along the bottom area of French Hill and Isawiyah.
Quiet and no unusual happenings.
Very few vehicles going in either direction. No incidents to report
