Morning

This time a different report:

We arrived at the checkpoint – the agricultural gate at Falamiya – about 10 minutes before its opening so that we had time to have a conversation with the persons who were waiting for the opening of the ”bawabi” (gate).

We met a man who is a doctor for sport science and who teaches at the university, and an advocate from Qalqiliya. Both have a family ownership of land plots, so that in their entry permit it is written “an agricultural laborer. They explained to us that they come to their orchards to seek quiet and rest from the stressful life in the town.

About 25 workers passed by the gate.
