Israel says it has begun construction of massive new Gaza border barrier

France 24
Israel today said it has begun construction of a massive new Gaza border barrier. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told reporters that work to strengthen the Israeli border with the Gaza Strip had entered a new phase with the construction of an above-ground barrier.

He said the barrier, set to stand six metres off the ground, will prevent terrorists from Gaza from penetrating into Israeli territory on the ground.
 
This construction follows the 65-kilometre course of an underground barrier, also under construction, meant to neutralise the threat of cross-border tunnels built by Gaza militants.

Palestinians, now for nearly a year, have gathered at least weekly along the Gaza border for often-violent protests, calling for an end to the Israel's blockade of Gaza. At least 246 Palestinians have been killed since then by the Israeli forces.
