Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Sheikh Saed, Thu 30.8.12, Morning
6:20 Sheikh Saed
Crossing is quick, almost no lines.
Very few children, and they cross without interference.
Only one checking position is open and the line is long.
People lose patience and try to draw attention to the remaining positions but to no avail.
After a long time another position is opened and the lines shorten but don't disappear.
Although there is a fair number of children (but not yet masses), a children's track does not open.
A detained car was released as we approached the checkpoint. Most of the other cars crossed without inspection.
