15:45 – Tura-Shaked Checkpoint


As usual, the first thing that welcomes us is the loaded garbage container.


People and vehicles pass in the direction of the West Bank.  The returning workers tell us that in the morning they opened the checkpoint on time.


We were notified that the electricity in Daher al Malec is supposed to arrive on 10 August,inshallah.


On the road to Barta’a, we met a truck from a local company whose job is to empty the garbage (finally).


16:05 – Barta’a-Reihan Checkpoint


In the upper parking lot they are doing renovations and building benches that provide shade.


There are also many more flower beds and they are blooming in a blaze of color.


Many workers are returning from work in construction and agriculture.  Families with bags of groceries from Jenin and students are returning to the seamline zone.
