IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz told Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that the army has increased its preparations along the southern border with Egypt in light of increased terror coming from Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

The the IDF's role along the western part of the Israeli-Egyptian border, Gantz said, has changed from one where it was prepared to deal with infiltrators to being prepared to deal with terrorism.

Discussing the ongoing construction of a fence along the Egyptian border, the chief of General-Staff told committee members that 30 contractors are employing 400 workers to accelerate construction of the fence. Seventy kilometers have been built already and Gantz said he gave orders that the fence should be completed by the end of next year.
