14.00 Jubara

 The checkpoint is empty. 14.05  The children's gate is open. At the checkpoint of A-Ras are reservists who checked IDs and in one case,
the baggage compartment.

14.45 Anabta

17 cars wait at the entrance to Tulkarm. At the exit there is little traffic. Shortly after we got there the traffic jam was solved.  IDs were checked in both directions. The soldier only wanted to see that there were IDs and the window remained closed. We went on to Shave Shomron and Beit Iba.

17.20 Qalqiliya.  At the entrance Israeli cars were checked separately at the side of the road. The drivers showed IDs. The line was short. Riva asked why as at Beit Iba we had heard that the line here was very long lately. Sometimes people waited two hours. The DCO representative answered that the line was longer as the Israeli cars were checked for a longer time.
