Reihan, Shaked, Wed 30.6.10, Morning
Translation: Yael S.
09:00 - Shaked-Tura checkpoint
There weren't so many people. One man apparently an Israeli Arab, wants to pay a resident of the West bank for work, The two weren't allowed to meet at the area of the checkpoint. In the end a third party, a man with a permit, had transferred the money. People told us that there are difficulties transferring chicks from the West bank into the Seam Line zone, to be raised there.There is a situation where residents of the Seam line zone are banned from buying chicks nor in Israel neither in the West Bank because the chicks... have no entry permits to Israel.
Four small children went through on their way to the single house with bicycles and without an escort of an adult.
