Barta'a-Reihan, Tura-Shaked

Zafrira Z., Hanah H. Translation: Yael Bassis-Student


15:25 Shaked checkpoint  

Once again the waste container over flows and garbage is flying in the air. The checkpoint is quiet and only a few cross on both sides


16:00 Rihan checkpoint   

Adults with children return from Jenin carrying parcels. Groups of workers return from Israel and from the Seam Line zone into the West Bank.

Only one biometric machine serves all workers, which causes a long line. After Zafrira calls several times for help, a second machine is activated and the line shortens.

Those returning from Israel tell us that there is no improvement at the Yirtach checkpoint and in the morning there is a great deal of crowding – "it's like war".
