Translation: Galia S.

13:50 – We pass the Figs Gate and go straight to Beit Iba, a day after the closureinfo-icon of that checkpoint was announced. We don't enter Jubara.


15:15 – The construction work in the road continue intensively. The tractors are working. Only one lane is open for car traffic and the soldiers direct the traffic allowing cars alternately to enter and leave Tulkarm. The cars pass without being checked. The line of cars that leave the city is short, but at the entrance the line is long and cars stand as far as the junction.


16:15 – The road leading into the city is empty. The few cars that enter Qalqiliya pass the checkpoint without inspection.
