Isolated: Israel cuts village of Beit Iksa off from East Jerusalem and the rest of the West BankB`Tselem - “After the guards give me the signal, I drive up to the inspection point and all the passengers get out except the elderly. […] Sometimes, they allow sick people or mothers with babies or little children to stay on the bus. The rest of the passengers line up outside. A guard stands at the door of the bus and the passengers come up to him one by one and show their identity cards. He only lets residents of Beit Iksa and the elderly […] back onto the bus. The age limit varies according to the guard’s mood. […] It usually takes them about ten to twenty minutes to check all the cards, depending on the number of passengers. On days when they’re strict, it can take hours” [ry] 22/8/2016

Israel deliberately forces inhuman conditions on Palestinians working in the country by permitB`Tselem - “This reality, in which workers have to sacrifice a normal family life, a social life, and a reasonable amount of sleep for endless hours of waiting for a checkpoint to open, only so they can get to work on time, is not a necessary evil but a result of Defense Ministry policy.
