We wait for the gate to be opened. The soldier telephones the battalion commander to get authorization for opening the gate.

14:20  Ar-Ras

Shift change. Very few vehicles. They pass without inspection.

14:45  Anabta

There are no queues in either direction. The cars don’t come to a full stop despite the addition of a red fluorescent cord across the width of the road beside the big STOP sign in English.

A very hot day.
