Qalqiliya checkpoint


17:05 – Three Border Police soldiers are at the checkpoint. We have counted 30 cars waiting in line to enter Qalqiliya. The documents of the passengers of entering vehicles are checked randomly. Outgoing vehicles pass the checkpoint without inspection. Two reservists come to the aid of the soldiers. They also come to us offering their help. To our request to let people get back home without unnecessary delays, they say they are on alert looking for a specific car. They join the soldiers who carry out the inspections and the line of entering cars is getting shorter.
