8.30-9.15 Beit Iba
Five vehicles in line to enter Nablus (waiting-time about 10 minutes). The shed of those waiting to enter was full. The soldiers spot-checked ID’s of those entering; women entered without checking. The detainees’ shed was empty. A truck driver was made to tear open the packages he was transporting. A man carrying a computer got stuck in the narrow carousel exiting Nablus.
8.50 As the pressure decreased slightly the soldiers decided to begin checking ID’s against the list.
9.10 A dog-handler arrived at the checkpoint, but no dog was visible.
