Irtah - Closed
Upon arrival at 3:45 we notice that the parking lot is vacant. As we tried to get closer to the gates a loudspeaker called us “closed today all closed”’ and prevented us from approaching the enclosed yard to find out what happened.
Apparently not all van drivers knew about the closure in advance, as one arrived after us, saw the empty parking lot, and backed off.
From this morning’s report from Qalandiya, we understand that not all checkpoints were closed.
