'Anabta, Jubara (Kafriat), Qalqiliya, Wed 21.1.09, Morning
7.00 Qalqilia CP is empty.
Two lanes are open and the traffic flows in both directions. But there is crowding. For some reason cars leaving Tulkarm are being checked very carefully.
8.45 The line from Tulkarm lengthens to 15 cars. The last one takes about 8 minutes to pass.
9.10 We went to Jubara with no problems. The reservists at 735 do not know us and have to check us out. About 10 minutes later Mickey speaks to the operations room, and they said that they would speak to the reservists. The soldiers claim that the brigade has not given permission and that we must go back to Jubara and from there on the lower road. We wait for the permission to arrive.
9.30 We go through.
9.30 A-Ras. A few cars from Qalqiliya and Tulkarm.
