Reihan, Shaked, Wed 16.6.10, Morning
10:10 - Rihan-Barta'a checkpoint
A 12 years old boy sits all alone in the shed at the Palestinian car park . I tried asking why ?. It turns out that his father went through with a passage permit for a visit in Barta'a at the Seam Line zone and the child wasn't allowed to join him. After a while a man, apparently the father returns from Barta'a, takes the child and enters the terminal.I moved to the side of the Seam Line, which is friendlier, and went down the net sleeve to the entrance of the terminal.
I've waited there for an hour and couldn't see either the father nor the son coming out. I was unable to inquire with the inspector as to their where about.
Six trucks , double trailers loaded with gravel drove through the checkpoint into the West bank . It is unclear as to its purpose.
12:00 - Shaked-Tura checkpoint
A few children went through as well as some cars and three horses with two riders.
12:10 - I left a quiet checkpoint.
