Gaza28Sep2NAZARETH (PNIC):-Over recent months, the Israeli army has began collecting the personal details of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank at military checkpoints set up in the area.

According to a Wednesday report by Haaretz daily, Palestinian young men who pass through those checkpoints are required to fill out a form. They must report their name, age, telephone number, identification number, type of vehicle and license number, as well as submitting a photocopy of their ID and giving both the origin and destination of the trip that brought them to the checkpoint.

The checkpoints operate in the early morning, when large numbers of Palestinians are on the way to work, further exacerbating the usual rush-hour traffic jams. The soldiers at each checkpoint must submit at least 100 completed forms for each shift, while the quota for the foot patrols is at least 30.

The Palestinians have bridled at the new policy, questioning the invasion of privacy that it entails as well as the disturbance to daily life.
