Morning

The Meitar checkpoint is quiet and empty. Route 60 is also quiet and with no military presence.

Only at the Dura Junction are there  soldiers standing at  the concrete at the entrance to Al Fawwar but they  do not delay the traffic.

The Givati soldiers are In Hebron. Their behavior and that of the Border Police seems calmer today.

In the large parking lot opposite the House of Machpelah a reception area is being built, apparently for the Hayye Sarah weekly Torah section. "Jewish exception," they call it, which means severe restrictions on movement to the Palestinians.

We entered the Habad section of the Jewish cemetery. The neglect is shameful and strange.

Otherwise everything seems as usual.  The posters of the settlers of Hebron states their opinions and plans in the usual unpleasant way.
