Qalandiya, Fri 18.10.13, Morning
Translation: Ayala Sussmann
Arriving at 9:00, the site was almost deserted, probably due to the holiday. The few that arrived passed through quickly. There was a bit of pressure at the inner entrance- ways. As usual, the place was filthy. At first, only one lane was functioning, but later on another was opened up. A group of four women approached us. One of them explained that two of them, 35 years old, had no permit and requested our help to get through if necessary. We explained that we couldn't help in such a case. As we heard no more from them, we assume they got through. At 10:00 a further inner entrance-way was opened and announced over the loudspeaker.
