Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Tue 26.2.08, Morning

Ruth E., Aviva W., Rama Y.(reporting)


06:30, Bethlehem CP. The known routine: terrible crowding at the Palestinian entrance to the CP, where two of the three turnstiles are functioning; long lines inside the CP, where only five out of the twelve checking posts are functioning. From above a female voice is screaming unintelligible orders. All as usual. The pressure alleviated at around 07:15.
07:50, Ezyon DCL. Ten people, all are waiting for magnetic cards. The DCL opens at time – 08:00. The first two men come out ten minutes later with the cards.
