Traffic jams secure Israel's "security" as streets of Silwan blocked again
September 3, 2010

Weekly Friday closures were instated around Jerusalem again today, with Israeli authorities stationing a series of checkpoints in several Palestinian neighborhoods, including Silwan. In what has become standard fare in Wadi Hilweh, the area's traffic reached high levels of congestion as a result of Israeli soldiers' stringent "security" checks on each Palestinian vehicle.
