 A woman and four small children, loaded with parcels cross over from the Seam Line zone into the West Bank. They leave all parcels at the exit of the checkpoint and  return inside for inspection. Vehicles and pedestrians  go through on both directions. Passage is swift.


16:0 – Reihan checkpoint

 6 passengers cars waits by the vehicles  inspection post, in the direction of the West Bank. The drivers and their passengers  slide in their magnetic cards, children sign in and the cars go through fast without inspection.


16:10– 7 passengers cars arriving from the West Bank drive up to the inspection post. The vacation time is still noticeable – families, women and children return from Jenin. Their passage delays passage of workers who return from the Seam Line zone into the terminal, and there is crowding by the carousel.

People are let in in small groups. 2 windows are open and inspection is fast.
