The construction began in late January as Egypt began a series of new projects to boost security on the Gaza border and prevent infiltration by terrorist and extremist elements from Gaza, according to a report by Al Monitor.

When completed, the new wall will stretch from the Kerem Shalom Crossing to the Rafah Crossing, a distance of about two kilometers. It will be 6 meters high and extend five meters underground.

The Egyptian government believes that the wall will prevent infiltration by gunmen as well as the construction of new cross-border tunnels into Egypt.
