Aviva W., Rama Y. (reporting)

06:40 am, Bethlehem - Checkpoint 300:  passage was quite quick,and by seven the CP was empty both sides. But there were many complaints - andthis is by no means the first time we hear them - of people in possession ofpermits allowing them to go through the CP at all hours. They usually arrivevery early, but many times are forced to wait for hours until someone bothersto let them through. This means a lost working day. This morning there was awhole group of them whose transport had left without them.

08:15 am, Etzion DCL: about 50 people.
