Reihan, Shaked, Sat 7.7.12, Morning

Rachela H., Noah L. (reporting)

0720 – 0750 Tura-Shaked checkpoint

The place has been improved, polished, including street lights and a pedestrian crossing.

There is little traffic on either side this morning, to the West Bank and to the Seam Line zone .All cross over relatively fast.


0800 – 0830 Barta'a –Reihan checkpoint

Lively traffic on both sides of the gate.

There is a line in front of the single open window at the terminal, but it shrinks in a relatively short time. Later a second window opens and the lines shrink even more.

People tell us that inside the terminal there are no delays and the pace of inspection is reasonable. We've learned that when men come out of inspection holding their belts in their hands, it means that inspection was swift.
