Barta’a Checkpoint - There were many people in the upper exit of the checkpoint this morning.  We went down to the lower parking lot. The shed that crosses the terminal was empty.  The passage flowed without any crowding.

The uncle of one of the young men was suddenly a “forbidden entrant” to Israel and he doesn’t know why.  Neta gives him the phone number for clarification.

Anin, Agricultural Checkpoint - About 70 people and three tractors pass through.  Two were sent back.  A 14-year old youth who came with his birth certificate instead of coming with his father and his father’s identification document, in which he is registered.  The father, by the way, is paralysed.  Another young man, the son of Faid Y., (an old acquaintance) lost his permit.  The soldiers sent him to go through the distant Barta’a Checkpoint.  The father was angry because the soldiers did nothing to try to solve the problem. They could have called the DCO and consulted with them.

We took three residents of Anin to Umm al Fahm, to an unknown area. We traveled alone a long and narrow road.  We saw surprisingly lovely houses decorated with drawings on the walls.
