Morning

Meitar Checkpoint: A terrible mess because they opened the new section and apparently it was not organized enough, and people actually crowded more than usual.

Road 60 was busy - mainly trucks on construction materials in both directions but also a lot of private cars. At Al Fawwar there is a checkpoint, also at the pool and at the entrance to the village. At the gas station there is nothing new!

We visited the Jaber family at the outskirts of Hebron - the son Jauda welcomes us and told us about the difficulties of not being connecting to the water network and the fact that every drop must be bought at an exorbitant prices. He brought us grapes that, despite the lack of water, were very tasty.

After the visit, we went to the entrance to Halhul to collect 'Ata Jaber, our friend of long ago. His crops were destroyed last year. He went to Halhul to bring cauliflower plants and so he tries a little to establish his farm again. So we helped him carry the heavy bags. At the entrance to the town of Halhul there are prominent signs of the army's presence, even though we have not seen a single soldier. There were blocks of barrier surrounded by garbage and objects and it was not difficult to see how the situation is there in the morning when people are trying to pass.

Back to Beer Sheva, Just before entering the Meitar checkpoint, we saw a large group of illegal workers waiting for an opportunity - why, not clear, mostly young people.
