A new security fence complete with high-tech sensors has been completed along Israel’s southern border with Gaza, the Defense Ministry announced Tuesday.

The information may help residents of the Gaza Belt communities feel at least a little bit safer: infiltration by Gaza terrorists will not be nearly as easy since completion of the fence, although the measure will not stop rocket or mortar attacks.

Approximately NIS 30 million was allocated for upgraded security in the region. Improvements included a three-year budget for fence maintenance as well as additional security equipment.

There are 12 Jewish communities that form a ring of protection for Israel along the Gaza border.
