Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that the Friday terrorist attack in which an IDF soldier was killed on the border with Egypt could have been more lethal, and emphasizes the importance of completing the border fence.

Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that, "without the fence, there would be more migrant infiltrations and more terrorist attacks."

The attack occurred along a 17-km. stretch of the border where the fence has not yet been completed, in the Har Harif area.
