Anin Checkpoint
Olive pickers returning home from the harvest in their orchards in the Seamline Zone, cross with no delay.  We observed one inspection  of documents, which seemed random. 

Tura Checkpoint
Three female soldiers are at the observation post, chattering energetically. A driver who was traveling to the West Bank, waited in vain for the soldiers to raise the metal  bar blocking the road. When another car arrived, we honked to get the attention of the soldiers so they would take notice of the situation. When they consented to find time for the drivers, some of the men got out of their cars, running, as if competing to arrive first to the inspection booth.  It definitely did not amuse us that the female soldiers obviously punished the workers returning home from a day of work, because of the honking, which was our fault.

Barta’a Checkpoint

This time we went down the sleeveinfo-icon to the doorway of the terminal and observed the passage of many workers, primarily the builders of Harish who were returning from work. A few passed to the opposite direction to the  Seamline Zone.
