Azzun, Jit, Qalqiliya, Thu 27.12.07, Afternoon
2 checking areas for those entering or leaving and a long line of people exiting the city and we cannot see where it ends.
The soldiers are resting and every now and again one of them remembers to motion to a car to come forward and an ID is checked and then another rest. Suddenly there is action and a soldier appears with plastic bags …they are collecting rubbish. Again a rest period. The people waiting say it is the same each day from 12.00 to 15.30. We told Tamar C., the centre, and Sari who does not really know this checkpoint. She says it is the usual pressure but that she will check.
where only small cars can get out because of the cement barriers and an ambulance passes with difficulty. One cannot call this an open passage.
At Pondok we see a Hummer at the north side with soldiers and someone who looks like a settler standing and speaking next to something which looks like a memorial to someone. A little after Pondok near the village Jit someone stands on the red house and this reminds us of an expression that mad people should get down from the roof.
Jit is not manned.
