 Beit Iba 


There are fewer people and vehicles at the checkpoint but a normal number of taxis.  At the checkpoint itself, the IDs of youths are checked, while women and older people go through without any inspection.  10 to 20 people go through a quick inspection by one or two soldiers.  The pedestrians from the direction of Nablus open their belts.  There is no line from this direction.  In the detention area there is one detainee whose name, according to the commander, was on the list.  The commander also explained to us that the reason for the light traffic at the checkpoint was the opening of another checkpoint at Ganot (Shavei Shomron).  Five vehicles were waiting at the entrance to Nablus when we arrived and were gone by the time we left.

The female soldier about whose behavior we had complained on the previous report was still present, but did not inspect the pedestrians and behaved properly.


We left.  The traffic was flowing at ‘Anabta and Jabara.
