'Anata-Shu'afat, 'Isawiya (East Jerusalem), Al-Ezariya, Container (Wadi Nar)
Anata: Very little to report. The abnormal has become routine. Children return from school, trudging along in the litter filled paths; vehicles progress through the checkpoints; occasional shouts from the border police but that is par for the course.
Isawiya: No change. Unimpeded access into French Hill and the road sawiyyato Maaleh Adumim. Concrete blocks remain on the road to Mount Scopus, as do the military forces.
Azariah: Continued neglect and reversion to previous messy status.Road to Wadi Naar. Still no new activity in the area which was prepared for some kind of building project.
Wadi Nar: Many fewer vehicles than we used to see in the past. Perhaps it was the time of day (around 3:00 p.m.) but we used to see many workers returning home, line ups of transits etc. None of that present in the past few weeks.
