Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday the construction of the security fence along the borders with Egypt is well underway and will complete by October.
Netanyahu identified, in an inspection tour of a section of the fence this afternoon, four security risks facing his country, namely the borders, the missiles, the nuclear weapons and the cyber warfare.
During the tour, the fourth in two years, the prime minister was briefed on reports on the security along the southwest borders, Israel Radio reported.
In his last August tour, he instructed speeding up the construction process, citing the growing risks of armed attacks on Israel from Sinai Peninsula, northeast Egypt.
On a separate note, Netanyahu commended the decision adopted the Israeli Foreign Ministry yesterday to sever ties with the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for condemning the illegal practices of the Jewish state.
On Thursday the 47-nation Council adopted five resolutions condemning Israel, the occupying power, for violations in the occupied Palestinian, and other Arab, territories, mainly the illegal Jewish settlement expansions.
