'Anabta, Ar-Ras, Jubara (Kafriat), Thu 4.10.07, Morning
7:00 – a bus enters Jubara freely to drive children to school.
Traffic is sparse. An old man with a walking cane, the one who regularly tries to enter Jubara but has no permit, is sent back.
7:30 – we were received by a courteous sergeant, who was willing to speak with us. Then it turned out that he is new and never heard of Machsom Watch. We began to explain, and a discussion evolved about the checkpoints. One soldier who was standing at a different post and refused to return our "hello" earlier, now joined the conversation.
