15:10 Tapuah/Za'tara Junction
There are 8 cars waiting in line. The two posts are open and the traffic flows in both directions.
There are two posts. The soldiers detained one car at the exit from Nablus and checked it with a dog, for 10 minutes.
When we arrived at the CP a young soldier identified us because we met him about two weeks before, he came towards us and talked with us a little.
Then the CP commander arrived too and instructed him not to talk to us. Sara asked the commander for the reason to this prohibition, and he answered that this was his decision, and did not explain.
The young soldier seemed embarrassed but obyed his commander's command. The commander asked us to stand at a certain point upon which he had decided, and not to approach the CP too much.
At 15:35 we left.
16:05 Azzun Atma
The CP is empty and there is nothing to report.
