Smart Border Finished
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday December 7, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Israel has completed the building of their super hi-tech border with Gaza.  Aviv Kochavi, Israeli IDF Chief of Staff, announced the completion of the project.

The project was originally announced in 2016.  

Benny Gantz, Israel’s Defense Minister said of the border: "The barrier, which is an innovative and technologically advanced project, deprives Hamas of one of the capabilities it tried to develop.”

"(It) places an 'iron wall', sensors and concrete between the terror organization and the residents of Israel's south.”

Kochavi put it this way: "We have responded with force to any minor violation along the border and will continue to do so. We are bolstering our defenses on all fronts ... including against Iran.”

The border runs beneath the ground, its exact depth is a military secret.  It is filled with sensors which will monitor the sounds of any movement or digging, pounding or slicing.  The smart border is 40 miles long.  Above ground the fence is 20 feet high and is outfitted with remote control weapons.  There is, of course, a sea wall.

Israel is planning to build a similar structure along their border with Lebanon.

According to Gantz:  "In order to change the reality in Gaza there are simple steps that must be taken including ending Hamas's military build up, a long period of calm along the frontier and the return of Israelis held by the terror group in Gaza."
