Construction of the border fence between Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula has been completed after three and a half years, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.

230 kilometers of the fence were built in two years, while the remaining 15 kilometers took a year and a half, due to difficult terrain conditions.

The fence was built in order to stop the flow of African migrants sneaking into Israel from Sudan and Eritrea, a mission the fence has been successful in.
