The container (Wadi Naar) 05:50
On the way to Wadi Naar, on the road coming from Ma'ale Adumim to Keidar - there is a strong stentch of garbage from the nearby dump.

Before we got off the car we saw a thin and flowing traffic. Just as we arrived at the checkpoint, a Jeep with the new shift arrived. Changing shifts took exactely five minutes, and this included a short breefing and a simulation of a shooting event. During this time the traffic was stopped at the checkpoint.
When they openned the checkpoint again we counted 22 vehicles heading north, and two heading south, and they were waved through without being checked.

06:25 Zeitim passage, the westen side

The checkpoint is almost empty. The traffic is very thin and flowing.
