Netanyahu goes south to launch construction of fence on Jordan border

A day after Opposition leader Isaac Herzog called on the government to take in Syrian refugees, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went south to launch construction of the next section of a multi-billion shekel security fence along the border with Jordan aimed at preventing infiltration from the east.

Netanyahu, since returning to power in 2009, oversaw the construction of a similar fence from Kerem Shalom to Eilat along the Sinai border, as well as an enhanced security fence on the Golan Heights.

“We are beginning today the construction of a security fence on our eastern border, as a continuation of the security fence that we built on the border with Egypt, and which will join up in the end with the security fence that we built on the Golan Heights,” he said.
