Mouayad Amleh
I usually stand on the main road connecting the cities of Nablus and Ramallah, waiting for the bus that takes me to Ramallah. I stand near Zaatara military barrier south of Nablus, and to my left Israeli settlers from a nearby Israeli settlement and Israeli soldiers who have just finished their shift at the barrier wait and hide themselves underneath a cemented bus stop. To my right indigenous Palestinian civilians who have been asked by the soldiers at the barrier to stand far from the cement bus stop by at least 100 meters wait to catch a yellow van or the bus. Every day as I stand waiting for the bus I do my best to keep distance from the cemented bus stop and comply with the military orders of the soldiers.
