Israel to Build Security Barrier Between West Bank and Jordan


israel-fenceIsraeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is planning to build a security barrier between the West Bank and Jordan in a move aimed at asserting Israel’s control over the borders of a future Palestinian state. The fence would reinforce Israel’s determination to maintain a presence in the strategic Jordan Valley.

Addressing this week’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said a continued military presence in the Jordan Valley was “first and foremost” among Israel’s security needs “in case the peace frays.”

“The security border of the State of Israel will remain along the Jordan River,” he said.
