Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Wed 24.11.10, Morning

Aviva W., Rama Y. (reporting)

06:40 am, Bethlehem- Checkpoint 300:  avolunteer of the ecumenical organization told us that the Humanitarian line opened only at 05:45. The day before, we were told, the line was closed for an hour, after which those in line – mostly women – were told to switch to the regular line, as the humanitarian line was not to be opened at all.

The general line was very crowded too, and people complained about the long wait. By 07:40 the CP began to empty both sides.

08:00 am, Etzion DCL:  about 80 people at the CP.
