Afternoon

13:30:  Habla, Soldiers present and the gate closed, many people waiting in both directions.  The gate opens ten minutes later.

14:45:  Burin, About half an hour before we arrived, 3 settlers arrived at the school from the direction of Izhar (on their way, they passed the military post opposite the school, which was manned).  They were armed;  the students started to throw rocks at them and there was a lot of commotion.

The residents called the DCO on the Israeli side and about 30 soliders arrived.  After a conversation with the head of the Burin Council, the settlers left, with a military escort.  (According to people who were present; also Munir was present;  they said it was too bad we hadn't arrived half an hour earlier)

13:00:  Huwwara, the checkpoint was not manned, but on our way back from Bet Furik they began to man it.

13:10:  Beit Furik, the "apartheid road" (Itamar) about 20 meters from the entrance to Bet Furik there was a checkpoint with several soldiers standing next to it.  When they saw an Israeli car, they waved "shalom" to us.  When we arrived at the checkpoint, there were 6 Israeli cars there on the southern side.  There were about 30 soldiers standing there, some of them with kipot.  We waited until the line of cars went through the checkpoint in the direction of Elon Moreh or Salem.

13:50:  Za'atra, manned from every direction.
