“The Defense Ministry on Wednesday announced the completion of the main section of the 142-mile (230 km) Israel-Egypt border aimed at preventing the entry of migrants, terrorists, and smugglers.

The fence, comprising 45,000 tons of building material, took two and a half years to build at an estimated cost of NIS 1.4 billion ($377 million) and employed more than 100 contractors and 1,000 workers.

Reaching a height of 23 feet in certain areas, it includes a barbed wire fence, a dirt road, a patrol path, and communications infrastructure such as cameras and radar. It’s considered the most complex engineering project undertaken by the Defense Ministry due to the rough terrain.

Speaking during a visit to the Egyptian border, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lauded the government’s achievement in accelerating its construction.

“Mission accomplished,” said Netanyahu. “We restored our control of the border. It’s a huge accomplishment; we’ve achieved the impossible.”
