Barta'a-Reihan, Tura-Shaked

Hanah H. Shula Nachmias, Translation: Yael Bassis-Student


06:00 – 06:30 Rihan-Barta`a
At the car park we meet an acquaintance who tells us that today all is well, people go through swiftly, but he did complain that he and his family members have received agriculture work permits onlyfor 3 months .


The car park is full of vehicles. Crowded as usual. We see men only, which means that the women had gone through already. Traffic streams along, people come out, hurry up and leave.

A glimpse into the terminal indicates that two windows are open. There are no lines by the lower entrance. Whoever arrives, gets inside instantly.



07:00 – 07:30 Shaked

 In the pictures, Jews and Palestinians make a living selling coffee.


The checkpoint opens exactly at 07:00. On the side of the West Bank, there are people waiting and quickly crossing. We meet a person we know who tells us that workers from the Palestinian Authority would receive this moth only half of their pay because Israel and the US did not transfer money, due to the Hamas-PLO agreement.

As we say ;"There is no one to talk to".

Children go straight through.
