Anin Checkpoint
When we arrived at the checkpoint, at 15:05, it was already open and, according to those present, about 30 people had already passed through. There were still two tractors waiting, and about 15 men, women, and children. The passage is quick.

A military police vehicle stood inside the checkpoint. Three soldiers point their guns toward the people who pass through, and the fourth soldier inspected the workers. On the gate of the checkpoint there is a large, blank yellow sign. We could only imagine what the notices were.

Tura-Shaked Checkpoint
We arrived at 15:30.  It was quiet, as usual. Two men stood on the Seamline Zone side. Some cars passed through in both directions. There were no delays in passing through.

Barta’a-Reihan Checkpoint
We arrived at 16:00, the hour at which many workers return from their day’s work.  There is a stream of people and transportation vehicles. Most of the workers are young.  Three army jeeps cross to the Seamline Zone.

The routine of the Occupation goes on.
