The container

Thin traffic. Every car is requested to show papers, and they compare the documents with the engine number. 

There is a taxi with a group of detained women. A young woman approaches us and tells us that they are students who study twice a week in Beit Lehem, and they ask for our help, in order to enable to get home, in A-Ram, quickly, and they still have al long way to go. We asked the soldier to enhance the checkup, and wonder of all wonders, he motioned them to move on immediately. They had just stopped them, and did not even take their documents - just like that.

The traffic of workers at this time is scarce, and everyone goes through quickly.


As usual there is a thick traffic of cars, few pedestrians. Every car that leaves shows documents, and everyone who comes in is driving on.
