6:55  Eliyahu passage – checking trucks at the entrance from Israel.

6:55  Qalqilya – No line and no vehicles.

7:25 – Beit Iba, separate report.

8:27  Anabta, no line.  Vehicles at the exit from Tulkarm are not inspected;  at the entrance, a superficial inspection.

8:45  Jubara – They ask us for our IDs in order to enter Arras;  Hamdan's ID is left with the soldier, because "he needs to check".  After 5 minutes, the gate opens and Hamdan gets his ID back.

8:55  Arras – A taxi from the direction of Tulkarm waits for 5 minutes;  they check the ID of the passenger.  No lines. Another 2 minutes and the taxi is freed.  During those 5 minutes a line of 7 vehicles is formed, about ½ minute for each car.  In less than a minute, the line has disappeared and so have we.
