07:00 Habla –
About 20 people at the checkpoint. One comes through: “Today’s OK.”
The usual procedure: 5 people run toward the inspection booths, remain there a few minutes and quickly leave the checkpoint. Today inspections are relatively rapid, 3-4 minutes.
Yael knows one of the people being inspected, a worker in the nursery located about 200 meters from the checkpoint. He’s also checked every day, of course, on his way to the nursery.
07:45 - About 4-5 people at the checkpoint. We left.
8:45 Ras Atiya –
One car being inspected. No other people waiting at the checkpoint. A taxi driver waits for passengers; he says the checkpoint is operating in an acceptable manner.
