Morning

In the morning, Sunday, excellent weather,

At Meitar Checkpoint, there were lots of workers returning to work early in the morning after the weekend.

Road 60, on the way to Hebron, very busy traffic, entrance to Samoa' open.

At the entrance Dahariya an army jeep, the gate of Abda is open.

At 10:00 at the Al Fawwar junction, just when we arrived, there was a military jeep, soldiers around, closed the checkpoint, did not allow cars to enter or exit. Everyone,  people, women with babies, have to go on foot. The reason: Children threw stones.

We arrived in Hebron, the Cave of the Patriarchs, many  tourists, including a large group of Indian Muslims, walking around the area.

The streets around are still being renovated.  Opposite the shop  of Abed there are extensive renovations in a private home of a Palestinian, but also work in neighboring houses, already conquered  by settlers.

In the streets lots of children returning early from school who,  in answer to our question, explained that this is exam time and  therefore they come home  early.

We reached the barriers of Kafisha  and go through on foot.

We went back to El Fawwar  again, the checkpoint was already open, but the soldiers were still around. Vehicles and pedestrians entered and exited the refugee camp.

The vegetable stalls were opened around the intersection, but the owners  were afraid they would be removed again.  This is  so sad......

We left through Meitar Checkpoint, as usual.
