Abu Dis, Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Thu 15.8.13, Morning
Observers: Rachel M., Michaela R. (reporting)
It's 5:15, two checking positions are open, with short lines in front of each.
Around 5:30 many arrive and a third checking station is opened, but the lines grow longer, winding along the metal railing. Waiting time until entrance for inspection is around 10 minutes.
Throughout our shift it was quiet, we could see that most of the people are accustomed to the inspection procedures.
Two men are carrying a large oxygen container. They pass through the turnstile, but wait in front of the magnometer. They wait and wait and wait, and finally turn back -- no entry for oxygen into Israel.
Also a young man is seen to turn back.
