6:15  Barta'a-Rihan

A relatively large number of workers gather and wait for transportation. Those who have gone through claim that ,inspection is slow and people are required to wait a long time inside the terminal. "They train new inspectors and are waisting our own precious time". Workers worry about missing their rides to work, which usually don't wait for people.

Until 6:45 there was still rowdiness at the entrance to the terminal. Only two windows were open.

One worker showed us his new passage permit where it is stated that he is entitled to go to work, despite the fact that he is "prevented" and also banned from entering the state of Israel. Totally unclear to him and us as well.

 

07:00  Tura-Shaked  

The checkpoint is closed but schoolchildren are already here, awaiting its opening. One soldier opens the gate for them, and they go through. Later more soldiers arrive and traffic streams along.

We returned to Rihan to pick up Allie to Rambam hospital, in Haifa.

At 8:00 people come out at a normal pace. At this time there is no pressure but the employer won't wait that long….
