I've noticed you like to omit optional plural suffixes.  I do too, when 
it's obvious from context (i.e. numbers or verb prefixes).  Here, though, I 
would use {-mey} since both singular and plural nouns can be used with the 
colloquial {tu'lu'}:

   'ay'mey tu'lu''a'
   Are there sections?

   'ay' tu'lu''a'
   Is there a section?

Nice use of {joj} "area between".  I think the singular works just as well: 
{joj yIqel}.
