Morning
מסוף השביל של כפר סור רואים את גגות בתי סלעית
אדמות אנשי כפר סור נמצאות ממערב לסלעית ליד כביש המערכת
אחד הבנים בונה את ביתו אל מול נוף מדהים  בכפר סור

On the way to the Kafr Sur, we stopped at the Kafr Jamal and visited our friend Z. and his wie in their grocery. They told us that there was no Corona at Kafr Jamal. The army does not arrive to pester. (in the past we reported on serious harassments during the nights). All they aspire to is a quiet and peaceful life, a good income and health. On their land in the village, they have built a large building holding 5 flats for their five sons. For their daughters their husbands will care. However – for the plot, on which they grew hyssop (za’atar) they received only one single authorization to pass at the Falamiya CP. One person alone is unable to master all the work, so they decided to leave the plot devoid of plants. Why? The answer lies with the DCO god. Or not…

Kafr Sur – a small village situated east of the settlement Sal’it. The geographical distance between the two communities is small, but from every other aspect the distance if enormous. Sal’it was established as a Nahal Settlement in 1977, 3 kilometers east of the green line, and two years later, the place was settled by the members of the Herut-Beitar movement.

 At the beginning, there were acceptable relations between the inhabitants of Kafr Sur and those of Sal’it, but in 2003, with the building of the wall between the two settlements, the problems began. The fence was established in order to separate between A-Rass and Kafr Sur, which are situated to the east, and Kafr Jamal and Falamiya which are situated in the south. In the separation fence is located the agricultural gate No. 839.

From the end Kafr Sur path one can see the roofs of the Sal’it houses. Extend your hand and touch them.
