Separates the neighborhood of Tel Rumeidah from Area H1 which is under Palestinian security control. Staffed around the clock by the military. Palestinians allowed through only as pedestrians. Closed on some Israeli holidays, when settlers pass through the area. From October 2015 to 2019 only the residents of Tel Rumeideh were allowed through the checkpoint. In 2019 the military expanded and fortified the checkpoint infrastructure, to include a screening room, an observation room and four turnstiles. The checkpoint is definded by the military as a “terminal with a smart screening position.” Concrete blocks were also added next to it to prevent the passage of Palestinian vehicles.
