The pace of crossing is very slowand the lack of sufficient checking points is clearly obvious.
Outside - only one checking point isfunctioning and both men and women are crossing through it.
The people there are enraged. Theyremarked that the day before was fine but "today it is terrible". Wehad
conflicting evidence regarding thesize of the queue at the other side. We attempted to contact the Eucumenists aswe hoped they would be able to assist us as they had in the past: but apparentlythey are unavailable on Tuesdays.
8:10 AM, Etzion DCL: a queue of some10 people was forming outside the facility. We called to inquire the cause ofthe delay. Gadi replied that he "would open up whenever he thought fit…why do they show up at 4:30?" Indeed, at 8:17 the doors opened. None ofthe applicants needed our assistance.
