'Anabta, Ar-Ras, Jubara (Kafriat), Thu 4.10.07, Morning

Observers: Analynn K., Hanna P. (reporting)



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.
