Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Sheikh Saed, Thu 14.2.13, Morning
Shosh H., Rahel M., Michaela R. (reporting)
All Lanes Closed
6:45 Sheikh Saed
Crossing flows unimpeded, no delays and almost no line.
Few persons, almost no children.
On our way in, a couple of soldiers in the first lane were engrossed in their private business and the turnstile stayed locked. When they saw us, it was unlocked, then locked again for a long time. When we returned, a group of people arrived. All the lanes were closed. People started moving from one lane to another, pressing the keys, but to no avail. After a while, one lane was opened. Security guards stood opposite the outside turnstile and checked documents. A young man was called in and told he had crossed in a forbidden place, without documents.
