Etzion DCL, Nabi Yunis, Nuaman, Tue 23.6.09, Afternoon
We decided just to observe some checkpoints as the second observer could not make it because of sickness.
A big part of roaod no.60 is under construction. So it took us more time than usual to reach our goals. .
Etzion DCL: when we were arriving only 2 Palaestinians were waiting for magnetic cards.. After 15 pm they were called up. One was sent home with the order of coming back tomorrow and the other was questionned for a while.
Nabi Yunis: at the coffeeshop we met a taxidriver who was telling us that each morning during the rush hour soldiers were sending him away from the checkpoint Beit Ummar. He is forbidden any parking at the road and taking passengers. I gave him Sylvia's telephone number.
Maz Moriah: there was nobody crossing the checkpoint and the soldiers looked bored.
16:45 pm, Bethlehem - checkpoint 300: four counters were open. At 17:00 pm more Palestinians were coming.. The clearance was fast.
