Barta'a-Reihan, Tura-Shaked

Hanah Heller and Rachel Weizman

15:45 – 17:00


We drove to the Jalama checkpoint a couple and their infant child who undergoes Dialysis at

Rambam hospital in Haifa.

From there we went to the checkpoints:


15:45 Tura checkpoint

 The site was very active; Many vehicles, workers and students. There was also a truck loaded with old sacks. Pedestrians as well as vehicles cross over on both sides.

Passage is smooth and swift.


16:15  Barta'a checkpoint

Here too the site is busy. A lot of traffic mostly of workers who return from Harish. All posts are active, but the line is still quite long due to the many people crossing.

We are approached by people with passage permits difficulties. One claims that his mother cannot receive  a permit to visit her son in prison. We offered some telephone numbers of people who may be of assistance, Hopefully that mother can be helped.

People who go to the Seam Line zone tell us that they are on their way to Barta'a to bring in a bride. Congratulations.
