      Congestion Due to Security Checks

      Because of the Sunday-afternoon bomb attack on a bus in Bat Yam, south of Tel Aviv, security checks around Israel became more thorough, resulting in traffic congestion.

      The first area affected was the road between the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Geva'-Adam, just north of Jerusalem, and the Hizme checkpoint at the entrance to the capital. Added to the list were Highway 5, the Trans-Shomron Highway, and the Modi'in Road (Route 443).
