Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Sun 3.5.09, Morning

Sylvia P., Chana A. (reporting)

7:00 AM, Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300:  terminal almost empty, quiet on all fronts, no complaints. The EAPPI report that 1803 people have crossed this morning. Far fewer than usual.

7:50  AM, Etzion DCL: only few people stand waiting. Doors open at 8:10. Of the few people there, six came to have their handprints renewed. Why not have a DCL person at the terminal to do that service as the incidence is so high?

We meet a few people who are blacklisted, without jobs, complaining and we get to work.

Here is a list of checkpoints from which a worker can return at night with a magnetic card (as published on the walls):

1. Gilboa

2. Barte'a

3. Sha'ar Ephraim

4. Eyal

5. Makkabim

6. Na'alin

7. Atarot

8. Hazeitim

9.  Bethlehem CP300

10. Tarkumiya

11. Meitar
