Tinejdad, Morocco – Morocco accomplished the construction of more than 40-kilometers fence with electronic sensors on its border with Algeria.
The fence, which was built in a short time, responds to growing “terrorist threats from the Sahel region,” related to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), according to Anadolo agency.
Once completed the fence is expected 70 kilometers long, extending from the city of Saidia to the tribe of Bani Hamadoun in the province of Jaradah.
According to the same source, the fence will cover vital strategic areas along the eastern border with Algeria, and will cut off the route of smugglers who circulate illegally between the two countries.
In response to a question in the House of Representatives on the highest alert level set by Morocco to deal with terrorist threats, the Minister of Interior, Mohamed Assad said, “Morocco built a fence equipped with electronic sensors to protect against terrorist threats.”
The Minister of the Interior said earlier that the fence is equipped with electronic sensor detectors, which will be able to detect any terrorist threat targeting the Moroccan territory. He also pointed out that the fence will be able to monitor the movements of militants belonging to hardline organizations.
