Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Thu 30.4.09, Morning
Ora K., Michaela R. (reporting)
6:30 Zeitim Terminal
Lines are short and passage fast. A female soldier shouting on the loudspeaker.
When we arrived, we found a bus and 2 minibuses detained. A long line of vehicles standing.
Ora went to talk to the bus passengers and earned a conversation with one of the soldiers who told her what we are forbiddent to do, and then invited us to a cup of coffee.
During our stay all the buses and minibuses were detained, as were some of the transits, but we did not see any private or commercial vehicles detained.
Most of the delays were short, but when dozens of passengers' documents are collected the delays are longer.
From time to time vehicles were stopped, creating lines.
