6.45 There is no line at the entrance. 8-10 vehicles are waiting at the exit from the town. The inspection is sporadic. The rain has created a hole at the entrance to the town, and the cars have to slow down and drive carefully.
9.15 There are signs of uprooted trees and measurements on both sides of the road. The checkpoint itself is dirty and full with garbage. In two minutes a soldier lets the cars waiting in line at the entrance drive through. The inspections in both directions are sporadic.
9.25 An Israeli cab with Arabic passengers is let through. One car stops right after the stop sign, and the soldier keeps everybody waiting for 2-3 minutes as a punishment.
10.00 At the children’s gate a number of illegals are waiting. A group of soldiers is waiting by the gate.
Vehicles driving in both directions are being checked very carefully. There are only two soldiers at the checkpoint.
