Route 60
We left in the pouring rain and this may be why Route 60 was relatively empty. Nasser Nawaja’ (B'Tselem investigator from Susiya) reports to us by phone about the demolition in Qilqis, not far from Hebron.

The entrances to Samu’ and Dahariya, without soldiers.

We entered Musa's grocery store at Al Fawwar junction. He says that almost every day there is military activity. The army comes in, patrols and sometimes arrests people.
There are several people in the store who have expressed interest in my badge. We discussed the situation in Israel and how it will affect them. The name Ben Gvir came up, and the fear is great.
Ahmad, a 60-year-old pensioner, used to work in Beer Sheva. Relations were excellent, and he and other Palestinians lived in rented rooms in the city. Today he lives on a small pension from the Palestine  Authority's Ministry of Education. He says that his family was displaced in 1948 from the Lehavim region.

The army positions on the sides of road 60 are not manned. In the Otniel settlement, apartments continue to be sold, which indicates continued construction.
In front of the Shim’a settlement, a huge Star of David was placed in the Yehuda farm area. You can't miss it.
