Morning

The entire area of the parking lot of the checkpoint is full of vehicles, on the surface it looks like a normal working day at Meitar but above and below the surface life is very complex.

Road 60 Traffic flows.

1. At the Samo' junction, a Border Police vehicle is watching the traffic.

2. At the Dura al-Fawwar junction, we observed three soldiers standing near a checkpoint.

Local residents report that the checkpoint is not temporary but is now there throughout the day and night, 24 hours a day.

We received a report at the gas station that from time to time soldiers enter the al Fawwar refugee camp and conduct searches.

3. Beit Hagai Junction is open to pedestrians.

4. At the sheep junction in the direction of Hebron a police checkpoint inspects the vehicles at random.

Ata Jaber who lives at the entrance to Kiryat Arba informs us that despite the bad situation in the area and in the world, his family had a good season with their grape vineyard and they managed to earn a decent living. At the same time they have difficulty with the water supply because they are in Area C, and in addition he has seen several times several people (convinced that they are settlers) going in and stealing clusters of grapes.

Back via Route 317 we received a report from the grocery store owner about two checkpoints being held every day by the traffic police and from his observation the police are fining many people.

In addition, Nasser from the Palestinian Susiya tell us that from a-Tuwani to Susiya all the crossings were closed with boulder stones.

Sad, both Corona and the occupation.
