Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Sheikh Saed, Mon 19.11.07, Morning
Rina R., Maya B., (reporting)
7:00 Sheikh Saed. A few children going to school. 3-4 adults with blue ID cards and nothing else crossing. The new construction makes it even less accessible to come through. We keep wondering about the fact that the Supreme Court has not made a decision about the fate of this little neighbourhood, that seems so cut off and lost. A very nice Druz B.P. soldier shares his genuine pain about these people with us . It is heart warming.
Abu Dis The usual two bored soldiers who do not answer our greetings, and one man who is on the list are all we meet.
Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal). Hardly anyone around at about 08:00. We are told by the few drivers there that we have to come at 06:00 to see the true traffic at this terminal. So we decided to go earlier next time.
Wadi Nar .A few cars going south are waiting in line. Many more about 20-24 are waiting to go north. As soon as we arrive a lieutenant who is there as well as two B.P. start releasing the traffic and in five minutes the area is clear.
A very regular shift.
