Abu Dis, Container (Wadi Nar), Ras Abu Sbitan (Olive Terminal), Thu 23.10.08, Morning
Few people go through, and there are no problems. The absence of school children is noticeable.
Traffic is active, there are mostly school children. Suddenly route number one is closed, and on the loudspeakers we hear an order to move to another route.
A car that emerged from the eastern side, and arrived too close to the terminal got shrieking shouts "get themselves quickly out of there".
The toilets in the waiting shed are closed, and the water focet is broken.
As we arrived there we two detained taxis and long lines on both directions. Within 10 minutes the lines disappeared and the taxis were released. Most of the vehicles went through without being checked. Later another taxi was detained, but only for a very short while.
