Israel to Fortify Border Fence with Syria to Protect Against Jihadists


israel-fenceAs global jihadist forces have taken the place of the Syrian army across the northern border, Israel is determined to keep both infiltrators and terrorists out through the construction of a northern security fence, Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu told the Cabinet on Sunday.

“We intend to erect an identical fence [to the one on the Egyptian border]…along the Golan Heights. We know that on the other side of our border with Syria today, the Syrian army has moved away, and in its place, global jihadist forces have moved in.”
