Dramatic Drop in Infiltrators

.

The Israeli Interior Ministry reports a dramatic drop in the number of illegal infiltrators for the first half of July.

Only 140 illegal infiltrators were able to enter Israel from the Sinai, and all were arresteed.

In June, 1213 illegal infiltrators crossed the border, of whom, 928 were arrested.

And that number was just half of the 2031 who entered illegally from the Sinai in the month of May.

By next week, 200 kilometers of border fence will be completed along the Sinai-Israel border, and by October all but 14 kilometers near Eilat will be completed, and that segment will be completed in 2013.

  1. So that instead of them reaching our country, and being a problem, the majority will not be able to cross the fence and be killed by the Egyptians instead. Something morally wrong with our policy here.

  2. Michael Dar says:

    Obviously.. something has to be done to stop that plague. This our exclusive prerogative. If they are killed by the Egyptians they have only themselves to blame..they know the dangers and it is their own decision to risk it or not. Israel can not be held responsible for murders committed by others..Arabs kill Arabs all over the place by the thousands and permanently…it's not for Israel to resolve those kinds of problems….Where are all those international instances, human right organizations, the NGO's… apparently to busy to blame and condemn Israel for nothing instead of attending world's real problems… Something wrong with our moral standing…you must be joking!
