An Israeli security firm expressed interest in being involved with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal to build a larger, fortified barrier wall to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing the border between the United States and Mexico.
“We would join forces with a major U.S. defense company that has experience with such projects worldwide,” Koursh said. “We’ve done it in the past and we would definitely want to do it,” Sa’ar Koursh, owner of Magal Security Systems Ltd, told Bloomberg News on Tuesday.
Koursh said that he hopes to expand his company’s market, such as in Europe for instance. He also plans to focus more on selling products including fences, cameras and detection equipment.
Magal is known for building its “smart fence” around the Gaza Strip using video cameras, ground sensors, motion detectors and satellite monitoring. They also helped construct security barriers along Jordan and Egypt.
Koursh currently has a contract to build a barrier between Kenya and Somalia where al-Qaeda militants in Somalia have been fighting Kenyan troops.
