It is hot, quiet, and calm.  The routine of occupation continues.

At Gate 914 there is a huge hole in the fence and anyone can cross, even on a bicycle or small vehicle.  There is a large rock at the center of the hole to prevent motorized vehicles from driving through.  Only tractors and cars have to wait for the soldiers to open the gate to the right of the hole.   There were people waiting on both sides.

A tractor arrived from Falamiya with a wagon carrying bags of sheep manure.   The woman soldier didn’t understand what was in the sacks even after noticing the smell and called to ask if it was permitted to bring them across.  Luckily she was told that it was permitted to bring manure for the fields. 

The gate was opened for a few minutes and after everyone had crossed the stern-faced soldiers immediately closed it again.

The soldiers continued on to gate 935 (Jayus) and we followed them, but they were driving on a paved road and we were driving on an unpaved bypass road.  By the time we arrived everyone had crossed and 8 tractors had already approached us on the dirt road.    The soldiers hurried to lock the gate again even though it was not yet 14:00 when the gate was due to close.
