Israel Speeds up Fence Construction on Egyptian Border

Israel sees the writing on the wall, and it is not looking promising nor peaceful.

Be sure to read this account of the Israeli embassy in Egypt being attacked.


"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that the main aim of a fence which Israel is building on its border with Egypt is now to block militants and not just smugglers and illegal migrants.
"Putting up the fence is first of all against terror activity, and only after that against (other) infiltrators," army radio quoted him as saying during a tour of the border.

Israel began constructing the fence late last year to stem the influx of thousands of illegal migrants through the porous border, which has also been a major drug and human trafficking route into Israel.

A statement from Netanyahu's office said work on the fence would be speeded up and was expected to be completed by next September.
