Bethlehem, Fri 8.10.10, Morning
09.30 – 11.30 am, Bethlehem – Checkpoint 300: at last the closures have ended. Many Palestinians are passing through and everything is taking place quietly and fairly quickly. We don’t witness anyone being prevented from passing, except for one who is accompanied by his daughter, who tells us that he has tried to pass into Jordan five times in order to visit relations, but the Jordanians refuse to let him pass and he asks if we have a branch in Jordan . . .
We give him Sylvia’s telephone number – maybe she can help ?
