Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, ordered the army and the Ministry of Internal Security to prepare a plan to install a fence or a wall in southern Israel to prevent infiltration through Egyptian borders.The Israeli Radio reported that the first phase is to examine the plan and implement it in a limited area before going ahead with the actual implementation which could talk several years.

Netanyahu made this decision during a special session held on Wednesday evening to discuss the means for preventing the infiltration of foreign nationals and ‘illegal immigrants’.

Netanyahu and his team also decided to increase the measures taken against employers of ‘illegal workers’.

Another session would be held to discuss the measure that would be taken in regards to the children of the illegal immigrants.
