09:40 -10:00 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
Three shepherds and their herds return from the Seam Line zone to Tura, located on the other side of the fence.

10:10 - 11:20 Rihan-Barta'a checkpoint
-
People complain of  slow passage of cars at the vehicles inspection post, from the West Bank into the Seam Line zone.
I timed it:
A group of four cars was inspected within 40 minutes
A second group of four cars was inspected within 15 minutes
A third group of four cars was inspected within 20 minutes.

At the Palestinian car park area were two pickup trucks loaded with vegetables . They waited for an hour just to get inside the inspection yard.
Pedestrians went through without special problems.
Passage time per person is 10-15 minutes.
An IDF Colonel visited the site.
