It is very hot and the roads are busy but almost no army presence. The police are giving out finesinfo-icon all along road 60, always a policeman with a soldier accompanying him. I do not photograph because if I did so we would also get a fine.

At  the checkpoint of Meitar the last of the families of the prisoners are coming towards the Israeli buses waiting for them.

The new pillbox at Abda. Big brother is watching from the top and sometimes comes down to the road.

We saw  soldiers like these guarding Otniel.  They come down from the pillbox at Ramadin and the sheep crossroads. The checkpoint is not active.

Because of the tragedy at the checkpoint of Zilber, where a soldier was killed  by his friend, the Golani unit has been replaced and their presence is shown by bright Golani colours.

It seems that next week the checkpoint at the neighborhood of Kapisha will be activated.

At the olive crossing the entrance to Hebron from road 35, the Palestinian authority has finished  the work on the road. The sign tells the story of US aid.

We went on to Ramadin . The fence there  is becoming a wall and the work is at its height. The settlement of Eshcolot has been added to the state of Israel and the fence divides between the settlement and Ramadin.

At the checkpoint of Meitar the wall is being heightened.

The metaphors are eroded.

The occupation stands strong.
