Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said that Israel's priorities on the border with Egypt have changed in light of terror attacks last month that emanated from Sinai.

"Putting up the [border] fence is first of all a measure against terror and only afterward against illegal infiltrators," Army Radio quoted Netanyahu as saying while on a visit to the South.

Netanyahu said that he has ordered that the building of the fence be accelerated so that a 240 kilometer section will be ready in one year's time.

"This is a border of peace, and in order that it stay that way, we will need to reinforce security and the fence," the prime minister said.
