I happened to go by the Abu-Dis blockade today at around noon (I was showing it to someone). The blockade is now complete. In other words, it extends beyond the mosque, beyond Al Quds, and it is joined in an L-shape to the University wall, so that the only remaining way to get over it, at either end and in between, is to climb over it. I do not know if it is deliberate that on both ends, the betonades are stacked in a manner that gives a foothold to the climber, whereas between the ends the betonades are tall and smooth, making it almost impossible to climb over then.It is now nearly impossible to even see the other side of the wall (exceptthrough the occasional crack between two betonades).No soldiers were there at that time.
