07:00 Reihan
Five Transits are waiting in the upper parking lot. As usual, we hear dogs barking.
The geranium plants are watered. There is an additional restroom compartment with a sign saying "women". For the time being it is relatively clean.
Near the Palestinian gate about forty people are waiting. They enter quickly in groups of five. They leave the other side of the terminal after about half an hour. At the window there is a woman dressed in a gray-black uniform instead of a woman soldier. One of the armed personnel in charge of the CP announces: "Good morning, 'Watch' is here!" Just before 8:00 o'clock another window is opened by a young man (not a soldier). Four cars are being inspected (as usual -- with dogs, etc.). Three cars are waiting.

08:10 Shaked CP
Flags of Kfir Division decorate the road leading to the "Shaked Post". A sign that announces the division has been put up near the sign "David's Pizza" and there is a lot of rubbish near the fence. Four soldiers are at the post. There is some traffic: cars. A small truck with empty buckets of paint is not allowed to go through, and is sent back. One of the drivers jokes [?] and says to the soldiers who are looking into his car, "Make sure you inspect everything!" His comment did not provoke a reaction from the soldiers.
8:30   We left.
