Beit Furik, Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Wed 27.5.09, Morning
Translation: Hanna K.
06:15 Za'tara/Tapuach Junction
The traffic flows. Busses stop for a few minutes only.
A heavy feeling of "everything as usual".
Few pedestrians, and cars too almost do not pass at all but on the other hand the taxi area teems with difficult life. More and more contentions "there is no livelihood, there is nothing to eat, this is no life", and it is so easy to believe!
The soldiers are unemployed. The stall owners report that they are allowed to stay in the area til 07:00am. And indeed half an hour later none is seen in area.
07:45 Beit Furik
What once used to be the pedesrians' passage is now blocked. Cars pass without checking during our stay in the place.
The soldiers are bored, there is a feeling of desperation although it is easier.
We fled quickly because we can do that!
