Jaba (Lil), Qalandiya, Mon 26.3.12, Morning
06:20 We arrive and all is working well. There is a new DCO officer who overlooks the cages and especially the humanitarien gate.
The pupils and old people go through fast and the checking takes a few minutes .
The place looks a mess as always, we see it was swept but people throw everything on the floor, with a few exceptions who make it to the garbage bins. Some benches are missing, there is still only one neon light for the entire hall and it all looks depressing. We are told that at 4 a.m. the lines are bigger. What a way to start your day
In Jaba, the cars stand in line as usual and no one checks any of them .
Getting back to town takes an hour at least.
