Israeli authorities have accepted the plan of constructing the barrier on the border with Egypt. The wall is to be built in order to prevent the infiltration of refugees and fighters.

The barrier is planned to be provided with technics of watching the border crossing. The plan is based on two years. The wall is to be 266 km long. This building will cost not less that $270 millions. The barrier is firstly planned to be constructed near Eilat and Rafah. Later the entire territory of Israel is supposed to be fenced from the invading of illegal migrants.

According to the Israeli police’s data, the Israeli-Egyptian border is weekly illegally crossed by about 200 persons. Among them there are also criminals. The Israeli Minister of interior has called this problem “the social bomb”.

The official Egypt does not intend to hinder this construction until it concerns just territory of Israel. Remind that in the end of last year Egypt decided to construct a steel wall to fence its territory from Gaza. It is supposed to be set 30 m deep in the ground in order to prevent the digging of smuggling tunnels.
