A defensive wall aimed at preventing direct hits by missiles on vehicles traveling near the Gaza Strip is now being built in the area near the road where Moshe Feder was killed on Sunday when a Cornet missile hit his car, according to Channel 13 news.

On Monday, the commander of the Gaza Division, the Director General of the Prime Minister's Office, the heads of the local regional councils in the Gaza area and Security Officer of the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council Eyal Hajbi came to the area and decided to build the wall.

Until the wall is finished, the main route to Kibbutz Erez which goes through the area where the missile was fired will be closed by military police. An alternate route will be opened to allow entry and exit from the kibbutz.

Hamas's military arm, the al-Qassam Brigades, stated that they were responsible for the attack which killed Feder.

The latest round of fighting ended with a ceasefire on Monday morning after over 700 rockets were fired into Israel. Four Israeli civilians were killed in the fighting.

"It is clear that this is not the end of the campaign, and I therefore gave instructions to prepare for what will come next, and gave directives to leave armored and artillery forces around the Gaza Strip," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.
