Israel Finalizing Fences

Israel has finalized the construction of their border fence which separates them from Egypt.
 

On January 2, the Israeli Ministry of Defense announced that it had completed a 230-kilometer-long fence along Israel’s southern border. Construction of the fortification that separates Israel from Egypt began three years ago. The final extension is expected to be finished in May this year.

The fence is 4.7 meters high and is topped with razor wire. Military cameras, radars and other surveillance equipment will allow Israel to monitor the vast expanse that is to be defended.
