Reihan, Shaked, Tue 18.12.07, Morning
10:00 – checkpoint empty of vehicles, the few that appear pass without delay.
No commercial vehicles, seemingly because of the festival. Pedestrians go through
without delays, though some are delayed for an hour or an hour and a half by the computer, for unclear reasons, among them a man who claims that he has been passing here for years without any problem, and he wants to go to the West Bank for medical treatments for his wife who has cancer.
While he is held, his wife is compelled to wait in the car.
12:00 – we leave.
