Beit Iba, Tue 29.4.08, Afternoon
Beit Iba 14.50. There is no pressure at the checkpoint. About 40 people are waiting and the line moves steadily. There are two checking areas and a humanitarian line. Also those entering Nablus are checked. No detainees. The atmosphere is calmer than usual. No line of cars waiting. The owner of the kiosk explains to us that the reason for less pressure is because checkpoint 17 at Asira has been opened. Many pass there especially those from Jenin.
15.40 The line is shorter.
