Israel border fence along Egypt.

(Worthy News) - Israel says it has started construction of a galvanized steel barrier 20 feet high that will run the length of its frontier border with the Gaza Strip.

Israel's Defense Ministry issued a statement Sunday, saying it had started construction of an above-ground barrier that complements a subterranean wall aimed at thwarting Hamas attack tunnels beneath the border.

"Over the weekend we began building the above-ground barrier along the Gaza border," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told journalists before the weekly cabinet meeting. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
