We set out with heavy hearts and fears and decided not to go into Hebron.

To our surprise and maybe also because of the early hour everything was relatively quiet.

On road 356 a little after the Zif crossroad soldiers were seen walking along  the length of the road. Gas cannisters were  thrown but no shooting. All this information we got from the Palestinians.

Hebron itself and the neighborhoods are quiet. The demonstrations are in the centre of the city and inside the market place. There has been shooting and gas cannisters were thrown and people who have not as yet been released were arrested

In general is it calmer than I expected.
