Palestinians tell us that tanks cross this point often and one of them has broken/twisted the metal gate. It now remains open to enable tank passage. Until two weeks ago “security needs” prevented Palestinians of the Jordan Valley from traveling to the center of their daily lives in the West Bank hills, except for specific days and hours.....So what has changed? How is it suddenly possible for them to cross without inspection? .......(MW report October 6.2011)

On Alon Road Route 508 between Gitit Settlement and Hamra CP we saw three Palestinians detained by the IDF. A military camera located on top of a hill caught them picking "Akub" (Gundelia Tournefortii) which is a protected plant. The soldiers told us that this is a "terrorist attack". They were detained for two and a half hours and then were taken by the army, even thought one of the men suffered from an asthma attack.
