6:00 AM, bethlehem - Rachel Crossing: 3 checking booths are open.. There are pretty long queues but people pass quickly. One or two minutes later, another 2 booths are opened. Then, there are no queues at all. Palestinians tell us that on the other side, the checkpoint was opened on time and that also there - there are no queues.
