( Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his government is working towards erecting a full border fence around Israel in order to protect the country from the “wild beasts” that are terrorists.

“We are preparing a multi-year project to encircle Israel with a security fence, to defend ourselves in the Middle East as it is now, and as it is expected to be,” Netanyahu said while touring a security fence being erected along Israel’s border with Jordan.

“At the end, in the State of Israel, as I see it, there will be a fence that spans it all,” he added. “I’ll be told, ‘This is what you want, to protect the villa?’ The answer is yes. Will we surround all of the State of Israel with fences and barriers? The answer is yes. In the area that we live in, we must defend ourselves against the wild beasts.”
