Huwwara, Shomron Crossing, Za'tara (Tapuah), Sun 27.1.13, Morning
Aliyah S. (Eng.), Tamar S.(Heb.)
09:30 We entered the territories through the Shomron Gate. There was nothing unusual.
Za'atra (Tapuach Junction) was open in all directions. At one side of the center enclosure one Palestinian car had been stopped and several soldier from the Border Police were speaking to the driver.
Huwwara checkpoint was open and we saw no soldiers there. One thing caught our attention, and we thought there may be soldiers standing behind some barriers. From closer we could see that there were large dark plastic bags. Full of trash?
We travelled on road 60 to Al Asawiyeh. We saw the houses that had been built since the Oslo Accords on the Palestinians' land, in what is termed Area C, and are in danger of demolition. We saw no unusual military activity.
We left through the Shomron gate.
