Morning

From Meitar to Hebron

At the entrance to Abda the gate is closed. An army jeep and soldiers stand next to it. They are checking the passing cars.

Crossroads of Al Fawwar- both sides are open.

After the junction we go through what we have long known as the sheds of farmers who grow vegetables. They sell them along the roadside, wonderfully fresh and straight from the field.

t turns out that the army / DCO came two days ago, and on the grounds that they are a nuisance, that it is forbidden - they demolished the sheds and confiscated all the produce in the stalls. We decided to stop there on their way back.

In Hebron the children are on holiday and we meet them everywhere.

Today there are many soldiers, alone or in groups. They look at is with curiosity but hardly stop us.

The tent of the synagogue Hazon David seems to have been improved and is well protected.  From the rain?

The House of Contention is monitored by soldiers in the booth. It is quiet around there.

We left packages of clothes again in the hands of Hamudi, who knows where to deliver them.

At  'Abed's, they repair the roof and we cannot approach the shop.

In many places there are road excavations, infrastructure, pruning of trees ..

As we planned, we stopped at the vegetable growers and bought wonderfully fresh vegetables. It is  very impressive to see how we are welcomed and how glad they are to see us. And this in spite of the cruelty with which they have been treated. We saw and photographed the results: the remains of a shed on the ground and piles of what remains.

(They say that produce of up to 400O shekel was confiscated.

They are again picking vegetables in the field behind them and display them in bare stalls without sheds, and hide some of the produce from behind, fearing that they will be confiscated. The desire to live and make a living is stronger than the fear and what choice do they have?
