Report: Egypt border fence construction ahead of schedule

The IDF has also recommended establishing a canal between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea as part of efforts to build obstacles to prevent illegal border infiltration from Jordan. Israel has experienced significant increased attempts to illegally infiltrate its border in recent years.
