A-Ras.  13.30
Little movement and 2 soldiers check the few cars that came from Tulkarm. One soldier sits in the sentry box and another three move around the area. Those coming from Qalqiliya in the direction of Tulkarm are not checked.

At the childrens' gate (gate 753) 2 soldiers check cars entering Jubara and also those leaving but there are no delays.

Anabta.  14.00
A soldier motions to cars going to Tulkarm  to come through and checks randomly and this includes cars with Israeli license plates.  From the north there is a long line of cars. 16 cars. The soldiers work quickly and check randomly. The commander, sergeant R. comes to shake hands with us and says that he is at our service if we have questions. He points out that the cars which are coming along slowly give work to the coffee vendor and the seller of socks.
