09:30 Za'tara/Tapuah intersection

4 soldiers and one border policeman stand close to a military hummer, at the parking lot. There are no soldiers on the road. 

09:50 Huwwara CP

There are no soldiers. The traffic is lively as always.

There is a new signpost on the fence at the square "have you killed and taken possession too? There will be no olive picking at Itamar".

10:00 Beit Furik CP,  it is empty.

10:30 Za'tara/Tapuah intersection

The hummer and the soldiers too are still at the parking lot. There are no soldiers or border-policemen on the road.

10:40 Shomron Passage

Those coming from the west are meticulously checked by the blue police. Two patrol cars close the road and check each vehicle.

For those coming from the east to enter Israelthe passage is quick.

10:55 Azzun Atma South CP

2 boys with vegetables/fruit crates leave the village without being checked.

It seems that the soldier at the CP knows them and exchanges at few words with them.

A young man comes on foot from the direction of Oranit settlement,  takes out his papers to be controlled and passes three minutes later.

11:10 We left.
