Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Tue 27.5.08, Morning

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

06:30 AM, Bethlehem CP. Five checking posts were open. The soldiers worked efficiently (no phone conversations), and still, it was not enough – the lines were long, people were nervous, and the crowding on the other side insufferable as usual. At around 07:15 the pressure began to dwindle, and by 07:30 the CP was almost empty on both sides.


Once more, Bethlehem CP is not built for the passage of such multitudes, even when every thing works as it should.


07:50 AM, Ezyon DCL. Twenty people were waiting. The DCL opened on time.
