Seriously? Does this make us safer?

Translation: Hanna K.

14:30 - Huwwara:

When we arrived the taxi drivers complained that in the last two days, according to them in honor of the release of the prisoners, the Israeli police wrote traffic tickets incessantly.
 According to them all of them got such tickets, all the time, and furthermore one of the policemen hit Palestinians.
They are afraid to submit appeals because if they did the police would abuse them even more.

There is the usual crowd at the CP, but no special tension.

15:45 - Beit Furik CP:

8 cars at the exit from Nablus. A sparse pedestrian traffic.
