Saudi Arabia to build 900km fence along Iraq boarder
The great wall of Saudi
The new project was unveiled this week in a story filed by the state-owned Saudi Press Agency, and will involve the construction of five layers of fencing as well as watch towers, night-vision cameras and radars. The Saudi fence – aimed at tackling the unstable situation in the neighbouring country – will stretch from Hafar al-Batin, near the Iraq-Kuwait border, to the northeast town of Turaif.
It will also reportedly have 32 rapid response centres, three rapid intervention squads, 78 monitoring towers, 38 back and front gates, 10 monitoring and surveillance vehicles, 1,450,000 metres of fiber optics networks and 50 radars.
