Reihan, Shaked, Wed 20.7.11, Morning
07:15 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
Many people came to work at the Seam Line zone and waited to cross over. They arrived in group and went to work as a group. They were forced to wait until all group members who are driven to work in the same vehicle, would go through.
By 08:15 all did go through.
The Archeological workers arrived in their own minibus, they went through with their digging gear and wheelbarrow.
Together with me The new DCO representative arrived, whose job is to deal with the Seam line zone problems which are under the responsibility of the Jenin DCO (Salem). His name is Walle. He said he wanted to help. I reported to him problems of delays caused by the computer, to cars owned by residents of the Seam Line zone. He is aware of that problem and knows its source.
08:35 Reihan-Barta'a checkpoint
Organized cabs from Jenin arrived, and like other checkpoint drivers, remained unemployed. Who ever arrived, went through. People without all necessary papers no longer bother to show up .
There is no "Maybe...."
09:15 Seven private cars entered the inspection area.
09:30 Seven trucks entered the inspection area.
10:45- I left.
