Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu flew down to the border with Egypt Tuesday to look at the progress of the border fence on the western border. The prime minister expressed satisfaction with the pace of the work.

Currently, 104 kilometers of the 242-kilometer-long border with Egypt has a 4.7-meter fence with razor barbed wire. By September, another 123 kilometers are expected to be finished with the whole border sealed by the end of the year.

Netanyahu said that the fence answers one of Israel's four threats, which he identified as the nuclear threat, the missile threat, the cyber threat, and the border threat.
