'Azzun, Beit Furik, Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Thu 17.12.09, Morning
Translation: Hanna K.
Azzun 06:20 –
There are two queues of workmen, relatively short. Their endorsements are only for the settlements in the vicinity, but they can of course get to any place. There is on the other hand the risk of being caught. When leaving they register in order to assure their return according to the endorsement they hold.
There is here a volunteer from the Seamline, Yehuda Haviv. Really nice.
06:40 Near the entrance to Beit Arie there is a rolling CP.
The Beit Furik CP – there is nobody. One can get up to Nablus.
Two taxis were stopped. To one they sent a girl dog trainer, and released it. The second taxi was stopped because its passengers were young people. The taxi was forced to return to Nablus and one passenger was detained for further checking.
We asked the DCO about the "activities" of the Har Beraha settlers. He told us that at the beginning of the "freezing injunction" they came down and created havoc.
08:00 Za'tara/Tapuah Junction
At the parking lot the blue police flickers. Through the loudspeaker they summon the cars that arrive at the CP and have their licences checked. When we asked they said that they were traffic policemen only.
