Afternoon

14:15  Habla.  As we arrive the soldiers are closing the gate.  Two women with children and infants sat in the shed waiting for a ride.  They asked us to take them with us to the Bedouin neighborhood near Alfei Menashe.  We agreed.

A white armored military pickup truck stood next to the last plant nursery on the road from the checkpoint.

15:00  Jit junction.  The tents soldiers erected a month ago by the roadside are inhabited.

15:15  Madama.  On Wednesday evening, 5.9, soldiers came to the village center, rode around and fired into the air.  Frightened people fled to their homes and children screamed in fear.

15:30  Burin.  The emplacement next to the school is manned.

15:35  Huwwara.  Settlers are working on both sides of the road next to the plaza with two Bobcat tractors.  They’re moving rocks from side to side.  They’re apparently laying some kind of foundation.  Next week we’ll find out what’s going on.

The checkpoint wasn’t manned.  We waited until 16:00 and returned again to check because the checkpoint is usually manned at this hour.

Beit Furik.  The checkpoint isn’t manned.
