We were told by 2 women from the Ecumenical Council whom we saw at Beit Iba that there were some problems lately in Anabta. She was told that the army wants to confiscate 6 dunams of land around the CP to build a terminal, and the land belongs to a number of families who have brought the case to court. According to her observation this has caused  tension between the army and the local population.

We were not at A Ras.
