Meitar Checkpoint

The parking lot at Meitar Checkpoint was filled with cars as well as the area near the hole in the separation fence, which serves as a place to cross.    A large sign at the checkpoint states that trucks are forbidden to drive through from 05:30 – 09:00 in the morning and from  15:30 – 18:00.  Maybe now there will be no traffic jams.

We drove to Susiya.  Nasser invited me to see the playground and to meet the donors.  The settlers are putting pressure on the Civil Administration to demolish the playground, but meanwhile there is no demolition order.   The playground at the school in Susiya was also donated by the Fund for Children’s Protection.  55 school – aged children attend the school in Susiya and 35 kindergartners.   A demolition order was also issued for the school but is no longer in danger of being demolished after it was proven that it is within Area B.

When we arrived the children and teachers were working outside and the area looks very attractive and well – kept.

In the firing range near the army camp in Susiya the gate to the road leading to Yatta was open.  Occasionally the soldiers go down to close it, cutting the residents of Susiya off from the Yatta area.  The teachers who come from Yatta  cannot reach the school in Susiya.   This is what the masters of the land have determined. 

In general things were calm today.
