HEBRON REFLECTION: A morning like any otherInger Styrbjorn - CPTnet- When the door eventually opens, a small child comes out. After several walks through the detector, the boy is finally free. His smile is a little embarrassed when he joins his waiting companion with his backpack, belt, and cell phone in hand. 

A small girl, maybe seven years, tries to take the shortcut past the trailer, but is observed by the soldier, who hastily comes out and sends her back. When she comes out of the trailer, I see that soldiers have searched her school bag. She stops and does up the zippers and hurries to her school28/4/2011

Then we must wait at first one, then another, then often another, turnstile. Movement through this is controlled by Israeli soldiers some distance ahead, in their offices behind bullet and soundproof glass. For fun or as collective punishment, the turnstiles are often locked for long periods of time as the queue to pass through them grows.28/4/2011
