5 - 6 soldiers seem to be unemployed

There are just a few taxis in the car park. In conversation with the drivers we hear that life is easier at most of the roadblocks.

There are just a few cars which all cross without inspection. In conversation with the drivers we hear again about the easing at the roadblocks.
