Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Tue 20.9.11, Afternoon
2:00 PM till 4:00 PM
It was one or two days before the debate of United Nations about the recognition of a Palestinian State. The Israeli Army had already begun to close up the Westbank.
Etzion DCL, 14:50 PM: it was easy to get there. The parking lot and the waiting hall were empty. At one of the walls a new notice was fixed on the board telling the clients "through our new web-site www.cogat.idf.ill you can be updated with the current information and can download a form. Contact the civil administration offices and view the map".
Nothing else was happening. We left.
Bethlehem– Checkpoint 300: we arrived at about 3:00 PM. No client was to be seen.
