6:20 Sheikh Saed
 

No special events.
 

Sawaharrah A-Sharkiya
 

We met two adults who told us that sometimes the management of the checkpoint causes long lines, and pupils are late for their transportation.

We saw no evidence of this today.  A steady stream of pupils left the checkpoint.  Also in the crossing for vehicles, we did not observe any special problems.
 

Shuafat
 

We arrived late due to traffic jams.  The transportation lot was empty, except for a considerable quantity of garbage.

The pedestrian crossing was locked, due to some breakdown, we were told.

Pedestrians crossed along the sidewalk by the building.  Two soldiers checked documents swiftly and without delays.

If this is possible, who needs this sinister structure with its many narrow corridors and 6 turnstiles which must be negotiated by everyone?
