2. Checkpoint 300 (Bethlehem/Rachel’s Tomb). 10:32AM

3. Nu’man Checkpoint (Mazmoriya). 10:52AM

4. Sheikh Saad Checkpoint. 11:28AM

5. Sawahira Asharaqiya Checkpoint. 11:52AM

6. Abu Dis Checkpoint. 12:23PM

7. Abu Dis Checkpoint (sealed off,inactive). 12:41PM

8. Zeitim Checkpoint (Al-Tur). 12:56PM

9. A-Za’ayyem Checkpoint. 13:04PM
