Army Tightens Measures At Two Main Roadblocks
Israeli soldiers tightened on Saturday the security measures at the Container Roadblock, 10 Km northeast of Bethlehem, in "Wadi El Nar road" (The Valley of Fire Road) and the Qalandia Terminal, north of Jerusalem.
Wadi El Nar, a long downhill-windy, curvy, dangerous road, became the only road Palestinians allowed to use to travel between the northern and southern part of the West Bank. And as of September 2000, only commercial vehicles carrying an Israeli issued permit are allowed to pass through the Container checkpoint. (bethlehemassoc.org).
