Eliyahu Passage

07:15 – Flowing traffic.


Qalqiliya

07:20 – At the entrance there are few cars that enter without inspection. About 6 cars stop at the exit and then pass.


Anabta

09:25 – The first thing we do is going down to the flowering meadow to see anemones and narbonne stars in bloom side by side forming a magnificent carpet in red, green and white.


Few cars at the entrance. The drivers who master the sign language go on without inspection. About 10 cars are at the exit. The soldiers stop mainly taxi drivers, ask a question and allow them to go on. One car bypasses the line and the driver hands a note to the soldiers who do some checking and a few minutes later allow him to go on his way. In the meantime the line gets longer, of course. Two more cars bypass and are allowed to continue. The other cars wait patiently. Trucks are checked while private cars only slow down and continue.
