Morning

Once again we met the DCO representative E. He is very nice and polite, and maybe it is worth while to contact him in case of troubles.

06:40 Zeitim passage

There is a vivid flowing traffic. Many school children go through. Waiting time is less than five minutes.


 
07:10 Wadi Naar

Randomal checkup of vehicles with pasengers (mostly vans). The vehicles are detained and released after a short time (fifteen minutes at the most) after IDs were checked. Sometimes only the documents of the driver, sometimes more.

 
In one of the detained buses some of the passengers - young men - were requested to dismount the bus, stand outside and present their IDs, while the other passengers were waiting inside. This took a few minutes, and afterwards the bus was sent on its way.
