Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon informed the Knesset on Wednesday evening that the security establishment intends to construct a security fence, separating the West Bank city of Hebron and the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat.
Ya'alon's remarks came in response to a motion filed by Likud MK Mickey Zohar in light of the deteriorating security situation in Kiryat Gat, where multiple terror attacks have occurred in recent months.
"We are aware of the issue of the fence, and now with the budgetary approval for the massive fence we plan to build one similar to the border fence with Egypt - it will take some time but it will happen," the defense minister vowed.
