Afternoon

13:30  Jubara

A soldier opens the gate. Routine, without delays.

 

The Schoolchildren’s Gate (#753)

Desolate. The soldier inquires who we are and where we’re headed, and allows us to cross through.

 

13:40  Ar-Ras

Hot and desolate. Lone taxis from the direction of Tulkarm pass through with no delays.

 

15:40  Anabta

When we arrived – there was no traffic whatsoever!! Not from the east nor from the west. Here too, hot and desolate.

 

A ghost checkpoint?
