05.10 Barta'a-Rihan checkpoint

People who come out of the "sleeveinfo-icon" say that the checkpoint has opened at 05.00 and people are let through in no time. Among those coming out was Wallid, on his way to work, showered and smiling. Inside, by the yellow iron door, there are no people waiting in line.
Men and women who arrive get in immediately and go through within a few minutes. Drivers say that today they are let through fast and that about 150 people went through in 20 minutes.
 It is quiet and there is no calling over the loudspeaker. Only the barking of the dogs is heard from afar.
7 pickup trucks loaded with merchandise wait for 06.00 when they would begging going through. Ruti times the seamstresses, 5 minutes from entering until coming out of the sleeve.

06.05 - A'aneen checkpoint

Tractors and people go through and say that the gate was opened on time and that today people are let through swiftly. Ruti walks up to the inside gate and surprisingly, the soldiers do not stop her. She thanks them for that and returns.

06.55 Shaked-Tura checkpoint
The gate is already opened, people and vehicles go through slowly but in an on going mode.

07.40 Rihan-Barta'a checkpoint (repeated visit
)
 Lively traffic of people who come in and go through relatively fast. The pick-up trucks with the merchandise all had already gone through.
Gardening workers clean up today the back yard of the checkpoint also.
As if all have decided to be in order  to day in this lack of order situation.
