Israel to build barrier along Jordanian border

By Rhonda Spivak, Netanya, June 15, 2012

 

It appears that Israel will be building more fences.

Israel radio reported this week that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered IDF and Defense Ministry officials to start planning a new barrier along the Jordanian border.

Brig. Gen. Eran Ofir, a member of the committee in charge of planning border fences, told Israel Radio that Netanyahu ordered his office to begin evaluating the possibility of constructing a new barrier along Israel’s eastern border with Jordan.

Israel is rebuilding the fence along the border with Egypt following terror attacks carried out from Sinai and the rise of Africans crossing into Israel to seek asylum or work.

Ofir, one of those in charge of the project along the Egyptian border, told Israel Radio that  that fence should be be completed by the beginning of 2013.

He said 181 kilometers out of 227 were already finished, and some 1,000 workers were laboring to finish the job.
