Entire segments of the security fence near Jerusalem have been breached, Channel 10 reported on Monday evening, allowing dozens of Palestinians to enter the country from the West Bank on a daily basis. According to the report, there was no fence at all for some eight kilometers, and every meter or so, the upper part of the fence was bent. Holes could be seen about every 100 meters, and the alarm system had been disconnected. The discovery raises the question of the effectiveness of the barrier, which was built to keep terrorists from infiltrating the country.
