Translation: Bracha B.A.
15:35 – A'anin Checkpoint
We were caught in a traffic jam in Wadi Ara (Route 65) and consequently got to the checkpoint just as the soldiers were locking the gates.
15:45 – Shaked Tura Checkpoint – the Palestinian Side (West Bank) Parking lot
There was very little traffic at this hour. A woman with a wagon loaded with bags was not allowed to cross and the soldiers refused to talk with us when we tried to find out why.
16:15 – Reihan-Barta'a Checkpoint
The Palestinian parking lot is completely filled. People make a place for us somehow and are expecting packages of used clothing. People were disappointed that we did not bring any this time. A few people are coming in and out of the terminal.
16:40 – Reihan Barta'a Checkpoint – The entrance to the terminal on the seamline zone side
There is no line. There are four detainees on the bench inside waiting. When a line begins to form another window opens. At 17:00 there is no waiting line and no detainees, and we left to return home.
