Reihan, Shaked, Wed 14.12.11, Morning
Translation: Yael S.
09:00 - 10:00 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
A few people crossed (as expected at this time) and there weren't any special problems. Towards 10:00 several families had crossed from both sides of the gate.
10:10 - 11:15 Reihan-Barta'a checkpoint
To my amazement there were hardly any drivers at the Palestinian car park this morning. The two that were there said that the rest no longer came because there was no work. A truck with three cows wait for inspection. About five more trucks loaded with vegetables waited on the road.
During my one hour stay at the post, two more trucks had arrive. There were no special problems at the passage.
Taxi drivers from Barta'a and their passengers, residents of the Seam Line zone on their way to the West Bank, are being inspected inside the cabs.
