Bethlehem (300)

Clair Oren Translation: Naomi Gal

Bethlehem, 1/4/2016



I never saw so many youngsters passing through the checkpoint. ynow and then there is some pressure but the waiting isn't long. Most of the time 2 windows are open, sometimes 3.

There are many young men and women. They are pass in joyful groups. Occasionally they wait in the checkpoint till their friends arrive and then the security guard demands that they go outside.  

Most of the time it was very quiet with no tension.

Two people were not allowed to pass and after checking documents and a few moments wait they are  told they are prevented. They ask no questions, do not argue and  just walk away.


Many greet one another and smile.
