Anabta, Beit Iba, Huwwara, Beit Furik

07:30 – 10:30 – On the first Holiday morning – Id Al Ad'ha [The Holiday of Sacrifice] – most of the residents of the Tulkarm and Nablus regions stay at home. The West Bank looks sleepy. The roads are empty and only few pass the checkpoints. We haven't found any changes in the army's instructions concerning the passage conditions at the different checkpoints. The soldiers have been updated by their commanders that starting at noon many families will be leaving for relatives visits.

In our opinion, we can do without the morning shift of Machsom Watch in the four "Id Al Ad'ha" days, or at least on the first day of the Holiday.
