Hebron, South Hebron Hills, Sun 22.2.09, Morning
We leave Tarqumieyh, heading for Hebron.
It keeps raining all the time.
At least there are no unnecessary delays at CPs now…
The Olive Passage: open, traffic flows.
Shauyukh Junction: open.
The House of Dispute: is still deserted.
Along the entire route to the Patriarchs' Tomb Cave, there are no soldiers or military vehicles to be seen.
Pharmacy CP: children walk through with no delays. A young Palestinian wearing a quasi-military coat is detained for a check-up. Is it because of the coat?
Tarpat CP: same picture. Children walk through uninterrupted.
At the Hebron exit, the Halhul CP, there are no check-points nor any trace of soldiers.
The rain, it seems, is good for everyone.
We returned home, following a relatively peaceful and brief shift.
