07:10 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
Three cars waited on the east side along with two herds of sheep, one horse, and 16 people. One the Seam Line zone side one car waited while another was under inspection.

T., a resident of Tura, in the West Bank, whose olive grove is located at the Seam Line zone near Daher-el-Malec, said that because of  the heavy heat in the last few days he wanted to water his olive trees. But it's impossible to take water from Daher-el-Malec because the village has no regular supply of water (as well as electricity). T.came to the checkpoint on Monday afternoon, holding a passage permit , riding his tractor with a water tank attached. The soldiers said he needed to coordinate transfer of water with the DCO. T. called the officer at the Salem DCO.
Y.said he'll talk to the soldiers. T. had waited and the coordination never took place. After four hours of waiting T. gave up and went back home without watering his grove.
