Afternoon

 

The hazy weather is suitable for today, which is the day commemoration of the Holocaust.

 

15:05– A'anin Checkpoint

We arrived a bit late, and the soldiers even later.  They arrived at 15:10 and began checking people near the middle gate.  A youth was waiting under the shed; a boy arrived riding a donkey accompanied by a cute and mischievous foal. By 15:25 the few people who were waiting had crossed. All four departed westward towards the Bedouin camp below the checkpoint, in the seamline zone. 

 

15:35 – Tura Shaked Checkpoint

The checkpoint is quiet. A woman in a red velvet dress crosses with a stroller and two toddlers.   A Transit arrives carrying women and children, and they get out and cross to the West Bank.

 

Reihan-Barta'a Checkpoint 16:00

Someone called to our attention the fact that the sign warning drivers of the approaching speed bumps near the vehicle inspection point was installed too low.  Two weeks ago he ran into the sign. We attempted to call the checkpoint manager and speak to him about placing the sign higher, but he was in a meeting and we left him a message.  A lot of workers are going down the sleeveinfo-icon to the entrance to the terminal, as well as families dressed in holiday clothes, on their way to a wedding.   

 

16:30 – We left the checkpoint, which was "operating efficiently."
