Israel announces construction of new barrier along Gaza border

Dozens wounded in clashes with Israeli soldiers in West Bank, Gaza - Xinhua | English.news.cn

They had penetrated into Israel from the Gaza border.

Israel has started construction of an "above-ground barrier" on the Gaza border to keep terrorists from infiltrating overland, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday.

According to a statement from the Defence Ministry, the new barrier will be 65 kilometres long and six metres high.

The fence is created to "prevent terrorists from Gaza from penetrating into our territory on the ground", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told media before the weekly cabinet meeting, the website France24 reported.

Netanyahu stressed that "if the quiet is not maintained in Gaza, we will make the decisions even in the elections period and will not hesitate to act".

It is being built along the same line cut by an underground barrier that is being constructed to prevent the infiltration of cross-border terror tunnels.

Looks Like Huawei's Folding Phone Will be Unveiled on 24th February

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been ongoing for decades and is rooted in the Israeli government refusal to recognize Palestine as an independent state in the territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

Thirty-two Palestinians were shot and wounded by Israeli troops along the Gaza border on Friday, the health ministry in the Hamas-run enclave said.

Palestinians have gathered along the Gaza border in numerous violent protests because they want to return to the land their families left during the war in 1948.

Israel has said its actions are meant to defend its border and stop mass entry into its territory.

With security coordination one of the last venues of cooperation between Israel and Palestine, the loss of such coordination could easily lead the PA leadership to take more drastic moves in the global community, figuring they don't have much else to risk in the way of Israeli ties in trying to get support from the United Nations on serious policy matters.
