'Azzun 'Atma, Sun 10.5.09, Morning

Yael B., Ditza Y. (reporting), Translator: Charles K.


07:25  'Atma.  People trickle out of the checkpoint.  Rigorous inspections.

One of those going through reports waiting two hours at the internal checkpoint, another claims he waited an hour and a half.

An Israeli Arab who transports workers is waiting for them to come through.  Complains about the situation of the Palestinians in 'Azzun 'Atma:  Someone requiring medical treatment, with a permit to go to Hadassah, wasn’t allowed to leave through this checkpoint.  In another case, a Palestinian whose lands are on the other side of the road is not allowed to get to them from here.


07:40  Almost no one goes through the checkpoint.  Occasionally a lone Palestinian shows up.  We left.
