'Azzun 'Atma, Thu 25.2.10, Morning
Translation: Suzanne O.
Over 40 workers fill the sleeve.
New at the roadblock: 2 military policemen are in the kiosk recording ID numbers. 3 soldiers who are observing them say that they are not permitted to record those leaving on paper unless there is really heavy pressure. Perhaps someone wanted by the Shabak will infiltrate.
There is still no awning for those queuing. It will be terrible there when the rains return.
We try to find out from the roadblock commander what the reasoning is behind the command, but he says that they are the orders.
We asked about the opening time and about the roadblock which holds up the workers on the other side of the village. According to him the problem will be solved when the fence advances. It will close the village on its far side and the only opening will be the one leading to the settlers' road.
What will happen to those wanting to get to work in Israel? The army has the solution.
