Israel begins work on NIS 2 billion underground Gaza barrier



The Times of Israel: “Israel recently broke ground on a new subterranean barrier along the length of its border with the Gaza Strip, aimed at stopping Palestinian terror groups from tunneling into the country and carrying out attacks.

The Defense Ministry in July approved the NIS 2 billion ($530 million) project that would see a concrete wall — both below and above ground — built along the entire the 60 kilometer (about 37 miles) border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

Construction on the barrier wall began at the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council, to protect a cluster of Israeli towns bordering the northern Gaza Strip from cross-border attacks, the Ynet news website reported.”

Opinion: It is entirely possible that on October 8, Hamas could win the West Bank municipal elections – pushing their borders right up to Jerusalem.

What other sovereign nation is so besieged by terrorism that it has to spend $2 billion on a subterranean wall to prevent its neighbors from tunneling in to kill citizens for the crime of being Jewish and living in their own country?

The UN says nothing, the US says nothing, and the EU wants to boycott Israel’s products.

The nations that continue to support Hamas and remain quiet are as guilty as the terror group, Genesis 12:3.
