Morning

At Meitar checkpoint, around 8.00 am there are still stragglers crossing.  Route 60 is unexpectedly quiet and all the checkpoints along the way: Dehariya, Abda, Khursa, Al Fawwar, the sheep crossing etc. are open. At Al Fawwar they complain that the soldier/border police were rude and rough in the early morning.   We returned along Route 317 At Umm al Kheir constant tension with the "neighbours" the Carmel settlement, but apart from minor clashes, nothing out of the ordinary. We were not warmly received but at least this time I was not banished to a corner. There is internal tension in the village as some of the younger men are becoming religiously more extreme.
