Bethlehem, Etzion DCL, Thu 19.6.08, Afternoon

Debora G., Dafna S. (reporting)


15:00, Bethlehem Checkpoint:  It was rather quiet.


15:40, Etzion DCL: We wanted to see if they corrected the sign that says that the DCL closes at 16:00.

We arrived at about 15:40 and surprise surprise… Everything was closed; three people that were waiting for a ride said that it was already closed.

The guard at the gate politely replayed our questions about the reason it was closed, he made some inquiries and, surprisingly, on Thursday they close at 15:30 and on the rest of the day at 16:00.


16:00- 17:00, Bethlehem Checkpoint: We headed back to Bethlehem checkpoint.

Many laborers arrived. There were three active posts with three efficient and polite guards, everyone passed quickly.
