Morning

In the waiting room, which was full to the brim last week, only a few people waited. We were told that today they opened at nine o'clock instead of at eight and many people crowded the hall. They began at once letting in dozens of peoples.

Inside, there were three soldiers handling the waiting people, and not one soldier like last week. They worked continuously and efficiently. The soldier in the window was polite. In the waiting hall, that started to get empty, we saw 22 new ads on one of the walls, in which the Israel Defense Forces announced land expropriation. In each ad, the appropriation location and the size of the expropriated area were described. There were notices of expropriation of thousands and tens of thousands of acres. Among other things, we saw an advertisement about expropriation in Gush Etzion. A guy came up to us and said that his family has land in Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion, which was about to be confiscated. He contacted the real estate office but was told that the woman handling the inquiries was ill. We referred him to Hagit Ofran.

A few GSS prevented approached us and we instructed them on how to try to remove the prevention. A 65-year-old man who was declared as prevented two years ago we referred to Sylvia.
