The Israeli government decided to recruit over 1,000 foreign workers in order to speed up the construction of a separation fence around the blockaded Gaza Strip.
According to the Hebrew-speaking Yedioth Aharonot newspaper, efforts have been in full swing to finalize the construction of a wall aiming to fence off resistance tunnels along the borders between Gaza and 1948 Occupied Palestine (Israel).
Between 1,500 and 2,000 foreign workers are expected to be employed by Israel to help build the underground part of the tunnel.
The information was made public by War Ministry Director-General Udi Adam following a meeting with senior Israeli officials from settlement communities near Gaza border.
Udi Adam said the wall, for which one billion US dollars will be allocated, is expected to be completed in a couple of years.
The decision to build the 60-kilometer wall on the borderland between Gaza and Israel was announced last year.
Advanced antennas will also be attached to the wall to detect newly-dug tunnels from a very close range.
