(Worthy News) - The government is preparing a plan to entirely surround Israel with a security fence to 'protect ourselves from the predators', Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Tuesday during a tour of the eastern fence under construction along the length of the Jordanian border.
The eastern fence is designed to safeguard the airport being built in the Timna Valley, and it includes observation posts. The cost of building the fence's 30 kilometers and fortifying the airport stands at NIS 288 million.
Netanyahu was accompanied on the tour by Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud), Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot, and the GOC Southern Command. (The prime minister also toured the area of the airport.) Five of the 30 kilometers approved by the Cabinet have been built since September. [ Source ]
