14:45 – A military jeep, surrounded by many soldiers,  is parked at the entrance to Yitzhar settlement.


Huwwara CP -  not manned.


Burin – There is a tent, occupied by soldiers, near the children's school. The children cannot walk around the school grounds as a requisition order for two dunams belonging to the school was issued by the army.

Madama –the army felled trees which belong to the inhabitants of the village under the pretext that they impair the "field of vision" and therefore have to be felled for security reasons.


Between Madame and Burin there is a rolling checkpoint. Everybody who passes is checked thoroughly.


On the eve of Independence day the settlers came down to the house on the hill which belongs to an inhabitant of Bourin and tried to take control over it. An army force arrived and prevented the inhabitants of Bourin from arriving to the house under the pretext that the house doesn't belong to them at all but to a Bourin resident who lives in Jordan. The soldiers arrestede to Bourin locals who "were unruly".


16:15 Za'tara/Tapuah is manned, many soldiers, checking performed also with dogs.

16:30 Haris Junction Traffic lights. Among the olive tress there was a military jeep full of soldiers. They talked with the Palestinian workers who returned from work. On the other side of the road there stood about ten jeeps, with many soldiers near them. We could't stop to find out.
