Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Thu 4.6.09, Morning

Shosh H., Michaela R. (reporting)
6:20  Zeitim Crossing

Little traffic -- no lines, and crossing is rapid.

6:55  Wadi Nar

We parked east of the checkpoint and stayed in the car to observe.  From this angle it looked as though the road was abandoned - not a single car went by.  Suddenly a stream of traffic north of the checkpoint appeared.  What had delayed traffic?

We went down to the checkpoint.  Many vehicles were waiting and four transits were detained.
In the course of our observations we noticed that most of the arriving transits were detained, for short periods, on the whole.
