07:45 – Three workers arrive and pass.
checkpoint commander asks us wondering what reason MachsomWatch women

ask him if there have been any incidents here and he tells us that 4
weeks ago they caught a young man who had Molotov cocktails in his bag.
There is little traffic. Once in a while they take ID cards for check over the phone.
– There is little traffic. Both at the entrance and at the exit there
