On our way we talked about the date - 11.4.
Two vehicles are being inspected. We must say something, we who have not seen the checkpont for so long (Riva- 2 years, me-3 years):
It is hard to recognise the place. In the past there were large cement bolcks on either side of the road. Now there are three well-organised checkposts with a roof above. To the east about half a kilometre of road is fenced with a man-high fence.
Thin traffic, although there is always a vehicle at each of the checkposts. Drivers present their IDs . Here too it is hard not to notice the addition of large cement blocks, very high and painted green/brown.
13:50 - 16:30 We carried on to Shavei Shomron and Beit Iba.
Many vehicles and some pedestrians, probably workmen, entering town.
Random inspection of IDs and permits. The movement from the town towards Israel progresses totally unchecked.
17:10 Elijah Passage
We returned to Israel.
