Barta'a/Reikhan, Tura/Shaked, Ya'bad/Mevo Dotan Sun. 16.06.13 morning
Translation: Yael Bassis-Student
Dotan checkpoint. The site is wide open for passage.
06:20 Barta'a-Rihan checkpoint.
12 pickup truck await inspection. There is nothing else on site. A hungry dog begs for food. Workers begin to show up. They cross over running and there are some who return from a night's shift.
A man comes out of the sleeve. We had followed him to check passage time. 16 minutes. He does not complain but says :"WE need no checkpoints".
A group of workers who sit under the new shed, enjoy a brief rest and a cigarette. Ruti recommends quitting, to no avail.
07:30 We leave.
