Yesterday we received a message from the Hars club that they wouldn’t meet today because they have another activity.  That worried us, and we went to the village to see what was happening.

It turned out that there was an activity today in Nablus for the entire Salfit area.  At the entrance to the club a large sign announced that our activity had been postponed until next week.  We felt better…

Before continuing our route we visited the home of the girl with Down syndrome (they invited us two weeks ago to see what she’d made from the netting we’d brought her).  She’d created lovely pieces, very imaginative, with her mother’s help.


We continued via the villages on the road to Huwwara.  There were no unusual incidents.  From time to time we saw students studying for final exams.


There was no checkpoint at Huwwara.


In Burin we visited the home of the youth who’d been arrested, spoke with his mother, who told us the trial will be June 17.  They still haven’t been allowed to see him, and he’s not permitted to buy anything from the canteen.  The mother is a beautiful woman – her suffering and anxiety aren’t visible on her face.  You can imagine what she’s going through; all we could say was that we’re on her side.


There were no checkpoints or dogs today at Za’tara/
