Israel to build underground wall on Sinai border

Underground wall

The Israeli authorities plan to build an underground barrier along the borders with Egypt near the Gaza Strip, according to the Hebrew Ynetnews web portal.

The Hebrew newspaper reported on Friday that the plan aims at preventing Daesh militants operating in the Sinai Peninsula from digging tunnels into Israel, although Daesh has never attacked Israeli targets.

It will be similar to the wall currently being constructed around the Gaza Strip and will cost around $940 million. It is expected to be completed within a year and a half, the newspaper added.
