North: His permit to visit his son in prison in Nafha has been revoked.
Jerusalem Day? The end of Ramadan? Barta’a Checkpoint and Tura – Shaked Checkpoint were both quiet. The schools are now on vacation.
One of the older drivers who always smiles and talks with us in fluent Hebrew told us to our amazement that 17 years ago his oldest son was sentenced to life in prison when he was 15 years old. An adult terrorist persuaded him to murder a Jew in Baka al-Gharbiyeh. He told us about this only now because his permit to visit his son in prison in Nafha has been revoked. Only his wife and daughter are permitted to visit, and he is now greatly distressed. He showed us a special permit to visit prisoners that was supposedly valid.
