“it is Egypt’ right and duty to protect and control its borders”.
What is technically speaking this new wall built on the Egyptian border? The Wall of shame is the second initiative launched by the US military to control the border between Egypt and the Gaza strip. The first stage of the initiative processed by American experts started over a year ago with the installation of below ground, state of the art, sensors able to detect any close sound or movement. Four US military engineers, according to Ma’an agency, monitor these sensors, analyse any form of activity and differentiate between new tunnel constructions or daily smuggling.
“the steel wall is not to starve the Palestinian people, but the existing tunnels are used to bring whiskey, drugs and Mercedes. As for humanitarian goods, thousands of tons enter through the crossings points”.
