Beit Iba

 08:15 The Shavei Shomron fence is extremely long and covers a huge surface. The checkpoint is unmanned, Traffic streams freely. 08:30 -Beit Iba checkpoint At the entrance to Nablus there is no inspection. At its exit inspection is through. All come out with their belts on.There are no soldiers with dogs and inspection of vehicles is swift. There are no lines and atmosphere is relaxed. The stream of people who go into Nablus is great and passage is free.Busses full of children are inspected within 5 minutes. An ambulance is sounding its siren hysterically and drives through within 5 minutes. One of those going through, who makes a living in transportation, tells us that tomorrow this checkpoint will be annulled.Pedestrians will go through without being inspected and vehicles would be redirected to Deir-Sharaf .
