Beit Furik, Huwwara, Za'tara (Tapuah), Tue 23.10.07, Afternoon
Za'tara, Huwwara, Beit Furik,
14.30 Za'tara. The checkpoint is nearly empty.
3 checking posts and a humanitarian line. Very little movement and nothing out of the ordinary. The strictness concerning the procedure at the checkpoint is so great that no one is even allowed to dress and organize themselves in the area.
15.00 Beit Furik.
Little movement. When we arrived the captain, Y., demanded that we leave the checkpoint and stand far off ( this in spite of the fact that in the morning he had done the same thing and had received orders from his commander to allow the morning shift to stand at the checkpoint. His argument was that he would have to watch over us but when Nadim reminded him of the morning's happenings and also we refused to move he left us.
16.30 Huwwara. Little movement although it grew slightly stronger.
Za'tara. About 10 cars from north to south.
