Israel Invests Billions in Border Barricades

“Insisting Israel has ‘neither geographic or demographic depth’ to deal with refugees, migrants and potential terrorists breaching its borders, Prime Minister Netanyahu inaugurated work on Monday to barricade its last barrier-free frontier, a vast desert stretch between the Jewish state and Jordan. Starting at Eilat on the Red Sea, the first section of the barrier — budgeted at 280 million shekels (US $71.3 million) — will extend 30 kilometers north past a new international airport being built in the Arava desert. Ultimately, Netanyahu plans to extend the 16-foot barrier ‘hundreds of kilometers’ all along the eastern frontier up to the sensor-supported security fence in place on the Golan Heights.”
