Morning

At the Tarkumiya checkpoint, we met a merchant from Gaza on his way home, after spending days in Hebron.

Najid, 50, received a permit and reports that many of his friends received a permit to visit Israel.

The process of leaving Gaza includes a number of steps:

1. Signature at the Hamas offices

2. Signature at the Palestinian Authority Office.

3. Signature on the Israeli side at the Erez checkpoint.

After the person has managed to pass through the three stages, he may enter Israel.

The oil press at  Tarkumiya will open next week.

A gallon will cost 650 shekels, about 18 liters. Very tasty.
