The breach near the Meitar checkpoint is still, as always, very busy. Even women with babies go through there. I wonder where and why. Police Army ?, Yok.

We drove to the Idna area via Khursa. We wanted to see what was happening in the Negohot settlement area. The middle ground between the two Negohots is filling up. Suddenly there is  a new settlement - Bustan Hill, with a large and eye-catching sign, a yellow gate, and behind it new buildings.

We need to follow up on this

Although we have been reporting for some time on the preparation of the land there, the construction of buildings, and the abuse of the Jadallah family, what we saw yesterday was another step. At the olive press  we talked to M. He has been married for 30 years to a woman from Jaljulia. She and their children have Israeli identity cards. But he has never been  allowed to visit his wife's family. We transferred him  to the care of Sylvia and her team. Sylvia says that the longer he has been prevented the better the chance of it ending. The logic of  the occupation.

On the way back, at the grocery store in El Fawwar a man asks for help. He has been a GSS (security risk) for 10 years, it is not clear to him why this is so . What's more, he is allowed to travel to Jordan
