8:20  Za'tara-Tapuach junction

Few cars, two inspection lanes open, a bus in the parking lot following inspection of documents. 
All the passengers were permitted to continue on their way.

8:50  Beit Furik

Very sparse traffic, even less that on other Fridays.

When we arrive the checkpoint commander calls out to us not to cross over the line - and without hesitation suspends inspections of the few people entering - and we move back in order to avoid causing additional hardship to those passing through.

9:20  Huwwara checkpoint

The inspection booth is empty.  The checkpoint is almost deserted - few pass through and continue on their way.

10:00  Za'tara-Tapuach junction

Once again, only a few cars, and two inspection lanes open.
