Hizma, Jaba (Lil), Qalandiya
We reached Qalandiya CP at about 4 PM after successfully negotiating the traffic jam in the southern square. We found only two passageways operating as laborers were busy painting the third one (for Passover?). After about 20 minutes the second passageway shut down leaving only one to deal with unusually large numbers of people, due to the fact that the western CP passageway for bus passengers was also shut down. Despite the large numbers, waiting time was not terribly long and we heard no complaints from those in line. There was nothing unusual to report. We left the CP at 5 PM and returned to Jerusalem via Lil and Hizma CPs. No one was on duty at Lil and traffic was flowing briskly at Hizma.
