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. ■
