A "flying CP" at the descent to Jit. Many Palestinian vehicles wait in line without moving. In answer to our question the commander says, "It is an order of the last few days". There were 5 soldiers, road spikes and stop signs. As we stand there photographing, the road spikes and stop signs were collected and the vehicles were allowed to pass with no checking. We phoned the operation room to check and were told that they would check with the unit. From there we got the answer, "There had been no "flying CP" and no order to stop and check vehicles."

Originally the checkpoint was designed to prevent Israeli drivers (strictly them!) from arriving at Qalandiya and Ramallah and sometime used also to regulate the traffic on road 60 so as to ease the congestion on the road for the settlers, but the checkpoint is also used to train paratroopers. "New soldiers", one of the seniors called them. The ones in training stood on the opposite side of the checkpoint and stop vehicles, they took the passengers out, checked their registrations, rummaged through the vehicle and went on to the next vehicle.
