06:30 Aaneen checkpoint
-
Traffic streams along. A man approaches us, informing us that his children, who in the past had passage permits, and were now needed to pick olives, were denied new permits by the DCO.
 
07:10 -Tura-Shaked checkpoint -
Traffic is slow. A driver who usually drives workers says that today things are quite disordered. He is waiting for people to go through but since women have priority the men are slow in coming out.

07:55 Barta'a-Rihan checkpoint
-
At the lower car park area , it is quite empty except for a few drivers awaiting passengers. They say that most people had already gone through and that this checkpoint operates well.
Inside the terminal, we learn that there are problems with the X-ray scanner/baggage screening monitor.
M., an acquaintance of ours, passes through the terminal in 20 minutes and reports that there are many people inside.
