08:00 - 10:00 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
Passage was swift, there were no special problems.
10:10 - 11:20 Reihan-Barta'a checkpoint
Up by the vehicles' inspection post new construction is going up. Apparently that is the cause for lack of coordination with the checkpoint authority for passage of trucks and that is why agriculture produce couldn't reach the Seam Line zone.
People from the West Bank who cross over at Barta'a brought in some produce in plastic bags through the terminal.
Private cars were inspected and drove through.
Gypsy cab drivers sit idle, watching licensed taxis picking us passengers.
