'Anabta, Ar-Ras, Irtah, Thu 27.11.08, Morning
Irtah, A-Ras, Anabta, 27.11.2008, Thursday morning, E.
6.40 Irtah. Many workers passing. They complain that only one lane is open. Some of the workers come at 2 or 3 in the morning so as to get through first. The rides do not wait for whoever does not make it in time, and the person who's late has to go home. Two complain that their employer makes them work 9 hours instead of 8. People suggest we come at 2 am and see the line and the pressure at the passages in the morning, They heard that the army is returning and are glad. We do not know if this is so.
In our humble opinion one has to turn to the State Comptroller or to whoever is responsible for the organisations so as to check how the duties are being carried out at the checking area.
7.20 A-Ras. Reservists offer us coffee. The hole near the road is deeper and the passage of cars difficult and infuriating. Not much activity. The checking is swift. An unnecessary checkpoint.
7.55 Anabta. Routine, Reservists. Unnecessary.
