At a checkpoint near Shavei Shomron, the IDF permitted a group of twenty members of the Physicians for Human Rights organization to enter the area to provide medical assistance to local Palestinian villagers. Earlier Saturday, IDF troops had blacked their entry because the organization members had not pre-arranged their visit, which is their usual policy. The group members said that they were not required to co-ordinate their visit in advance, because they were only entering Areas B and C, which are under Israeli security control. About 300 women were awaiting the doctors' arrival in order to receive oncological care in the medical center in the Samarian town of Sebastiya.
