Hebron, Sun 26.2.12, Morning

Here’s how a policeman described what Hebron looked like Sunday morning:  like the ocean, quiet now after Friday’s storm – the demonstration to open Shuhada Street and the massive response by the army and the police.

But signs remain – the lengthy delays of the teachers at the Pharmacy checkpoint; schoolgirls and teachers stuck for a long time inside the inspection booth.  We couldn’t understand why.  One CPT volunteer initially thought that one teacher was released because we showed up, but that turned out not to be the case.  She said they’re being prevented from photographing – only from 50 meters away, sometimes 15 meters, according to the soldiers’ whims – so she asked us to take photographs.

No detaineesinfo-icon at the other checkpoints.
