Hizma, Jaba (Lil), Qalandiya, Mon 14.11.11, Afternoon
16:00: A cold and rainy afternoon. The line of cars in the southern square was very long but moved ahead quite briskly. There was almost no one in the shed at the entrance to the CP aside from the usual compliment of peddlers with their stands. Inside the CP there were about 15 people on line in each of the two active passageways. A man emerging from the DCO offices reported that only 4 people were waiting inside for their permits. The bus "terminal" at the western end of the CP looked very busy, with a line of over 20 waiting to enter the examination area. Additional buses were waiting at the terminal exit as well as in the eastern parking lot. There were no incidents to report. We left Qalandiya at 5 PM and returned to Jerusalem via Jaba and Hizmeh CPs. Traffic was flowing in both.
