07:00 AM, Checkpoint 300: a horrible morning according to the Palestinians and the ecumenical on the spot. They opened the humanitarian lane at 06:00, and the pressure was very heavy. The ecumenical observer said that the soldiers were particularly sharp. Four positions are open, almost no people. Only after a phone call to Edri did the flow of people start. According to the Palestinians, many people were still waiting outside. They say it’s a difficult morning – especially slow.
