Beit Furik, Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Thu 25.10.07, Morning
At the Shomron Gate there is a Border Police roadblock with a police van beside it.
There are police at the Ariel Junction since the shooting that took place yesterday.
There are four vehicles in the queue from the west. In the car park there is a bus whose passengers have been taken off and who stand in a circle for a document inspection. Edna speaks to some of the women who ask what we are doing and how we help.
From the direction of Huwwara to Ramallah three to four vehicles are at the roadblock. Two lanes are open.
The Borin roadblock is open. Huwwara
Fuad has already spoken to Niv from Doctors for Human Rights. Muhammed’s I.D. no. is: 850728346, date of birth: 16.7.87.
The sergeant at the roadblock says that there are no limitations today.
The soldier there, Nimrod, said that he would check the matter out with the Brigade and get back to us soon.
Meanwhile the roadblock had reopened and a queue of 10 cars had built up at the junction. After about 10 minutes we returned to the roadblock, all the pedestrians had crossed. We went over to the roadblock commander, Avihai, and spoke to him. The queue of cars had remained static and we asked why they were not crossing. The roadblock commander answered that as long as we are at the roadblock cars will not cross. With no alternative we moved away again. Nimrod, of course, did not get back to us.
Zita and Marda are open; there is no presence of police or army at Ariel Junction.
The roadblock on the road east is still functioning.
