Morning

On Route 60, soldiers stand on  the hill at Abda.

Soldiers erect a checkpoint at the Dura al-Fawwar junction.

We heard stories from Palestinians about the terrible disorder at the DCO. Then we dared to endanger our lives and entered the DCO which is located in Area A and in Hebron in Area H1.

It turns out that every time  thirty people are allowed to go inside. Inside the building there is a machine which issues numbers.

The bureaucracy of the occupation is always ugly, and so are the gray barbed wire fences.

In the two pictures below:

The house of the Patriarchs has been evacuated of  its inhabitants.

The door is closed with a lock which has been welded. Remaining are the flags, the lamp and the electric light.

(I wonder who will pay the bill)

The meat market which is behind the Our Father Abraham neighborhood is being decorated for the many expected guests. We'll have to follow to make sure that the decorations are taken down after the holiday. The settlers have a tendency to forget this.  And the property belongs to someone.

In the pictures below:

The pillbox above the Abu Snan neighborhood with the base built around it. Photographed from Gross Square.

On Route 60 before entering Dhahariya, four signs have been erected to to warn Israelis not to enter Area A.

A romantic sign of the occupantion.

Waiting for the comics.
