In the shadow of recent security incidents in the south, a virtual fence that will aid in the detection and prevention of infiltration attempts will be set up on the Israel-Egypt border in the coming year.
Magna Technologies, a defense systems company, will be entrusted with constructing the virtual fence, which will cost millions of dollars.
The virtual fence will operate alongside the physical barrier currently being built along the Israel-Egypt border.
"Such a system would have surely prevented the terror attacks in the south," said Magna CEO Haim Siboni. "I believe that recent events will accelerate the process of constructing the fence, but this has been a long process of tests and checks over the past seven years."
