16:30 Anabta

There are 10 vehicles waiting to enter Tulkarm and none coming out. Israeli vehicles are waved through without any check, while Palestinians taxis are often stopped and checked sporadically

The fig vendor is no longer here, two weeks ago he had shown us a letter from the authorities to move from the spot because he was obstructing the flow of traffic, since last week he was gone.

17:00 Ar-Ras

Very quiet, hardly any traffic, the soldiers are very friendly, actually the only ones that spoke to us the entire day.


We ended our day stopping in at Abu Ghatem and his family, his grandson was visiting so it was a joyful end to another stressful day at the checkpoints.
