(The shift began with some confusion:  4 observers were assigned by mistake to Huwwara and Beit Furik, instead of to Beit Iba.  As a result, we reached Beit Iba late.)

8:00  Beit Furik

Ordinary.  About 8 vehicles waiting to enter.  They go through, as usual, one by one:  one goes out, one enters.

Two inspection stations:  one for those going out and one for those entering.  But if a large group arrives, the team that inspects those going out is larger.  A group of 10-15 arrives and are taken care of efficiently and quite quickly.

9:10  Beit Iba

About 20 people waiting in line to enter.  No special problems.  At the nearby kiosk Mahmud 'Alan asks us to thank Naomi (Lalo) for helping him and others the previous day at Qalqilya.

9:50  Anabta

Very few vehicles go through.  The soldiers check only a small portion of them.
