Traffic Protest Tonight at Hizme Checkpoint in Samaria

Residents of Judea and Samaria Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. at the Hizme Checkpoint will protest the frequent traffic jams that result from security checks. Traffic can back up from the north Jerusalem checkpoint for kilometers resulting in delays of hours.

Recently, Binyamin council head Avi Roeh has protested the situation by moving his office to the checkpoint. Police and the IDF have yet to find a solution for the problem.
