Sinai border fence half finished, will be 94% completed by October; Talk turns to building similar barrier on Golan, Jordanian border...


Israel will encircle its land borders with physical barriers that give it the ability to control its boundaries, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday on a tour of the 4.7- meter-tall, 242-kilometer-long fence going up along the Egyptian border.

Netanyahu flew by helicopter to the border with Sinai, as he has done at six-month intervals over the past three years, to look at the progress on building the barrier that will extend from Kerem Shalom near the Gaza Strip to Eilat on the Red Sea.
