DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:30 P.M)- Israel’s ‘Sea Wall’, constructed along side the Gaza Strip, has been completed.

According Israel’s Channel 10 News, the Israeli Army has confirmed the completion of its, 200 meter long and 50 meter wide, sea wall/barrier.

The wall was built with underground boulders, spying and tracking technology, topped off with a 20 foot tall ‘smart fence’.

The Israeli business magazine ‘Globes’ quoted engineering experts, on the 5th of Aug, 2018, stating that the estimated costs of the wall would be between 20-25 million NIS. The price however is estimated to have been higher.

The wall took seven months to complete and has come under fire internationally. The wall has been seen as further proof of Israel’s unwillingness to end its 12 year illegal siege on Gaza and its willingness spend money on tools to prolong the conflict, instead of relieving the humanitarian crisis of the population, under its duty, as an occupying power.

The Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection issued a “warning”, back in August, that the wall would take up 50 meters of Zikim beach which is only 1KM long.

Israel has endured only a single attack from Hamas fighters, from the sea, which took place during the 2014 war upon Gaza. The 2014 attack, targeted an Israeli tank and was not a violation of International Law.

Paranoia is believing you have enemies when you haven’t. Since Israel has real enemies, they’re not paranoid. And ANY Mid-East regime is more criminal and oppressive than Israel. I don’t think Hamas brags about the about 200 children who died while digging their terror-tunnels so nonetheless they use kids as human shields but they also use child-labour and if the kids die, they sell their organs to transplant clinics on black market. €80k for a liver, €20k per lung, €3-4k per eye… As a Hamas leader said in a speech a few years ago, they mad death an industry! Since… Read more »

A wall co-funded by US taxpayers money. That makes the US a partner with Israel in segregating Palestine. Shame on you Israel and USA.

Actually, USA gets far more from helping Israel than they spend. e.g. the new PAAC-4 Patriot SAM missile is nothing else than the Rafael’s David’s Sling SAM’s “Stuner” interceptor produced in Raytheon’s facilities. While the Lockheed’s missiles costs $3-4M per unit, the Stuner only costs 350k and ends being more efficient while fully compatible with Patriot batteries. With about a thousand Patriot batteries each loaded with 16 missiles + reloads, actually, just with PAAC-4, US military help to IDF (20% of budget) is largely recuperated. 77% of Palestine is Jordan, it was even called Arab-Palestine before Independence while Israel was… Read more »
