Sinai Border Fence and Kerem Shalom Crossing

Israel built the Sinai fence along sections of its border with Egypt to stop illegal infiltrators. The main, 144-mile section of the fence was completed in early 2013. In June, 2013, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reported in a statement on his government website that illegal crossings had declined 99.9%, from 2,000 per month to only two. "The fence that we built in the south is achieving the result for which it was erected," Netanyahu said."
