15:15 – Tura-Shaked Checkpoint

One woman arrives from the West Bank.  An old acquaintance worker who returns home to Tura tells us that the progress at the inspection room is very slow in the morning because of the disgraceful attitude of the male and female soldiers who waste the workers’ time with empty chatter.  At 15:35 a young boy arrives to the Seamline Zone.

15:50 – Barta’a-Reihan Checkpoint

Many workers on their way home to the West Bank pass through the only turnstile working.  From time to time the turnstile jams up but only for a short time.  Many workers greet us with welcomes and smiles.
