2003 – 2006 The Separation Fence
The Israeli West Bank barrier or wall is a contested separation barrier that was built by the Israeli government. The fence runs along and inside the 1949 Armistice Line known as the "Green Line". Israel considers it a security barrier and it runs at a total length of 708 kilometers (440 mi).
The barrier was built during the Second Intifada, which began in September 2000, and has been defended by the Israeli government as a necessity to stop the wave of violence inside Israel that the uprising brought with it. The Israeli government argues that between the year 2000 and July 2003 (the time taken to build the first segment of the fence), 73 suicide bombings were carried out originating in the West Bank. However, from August 2003 to the end of 2006 only 12 attacks were carried out.
About 90 – 95% of the barrier was constructed as a “multi-layered fence system” following the IDF's preferred design. It features three fences, pyramid-shaped stacks of barbed wire on the two outer fences, a lighter-weight fence with intrusion detection equipment in the middle, an anti-vehicle ditch, patrol roads on both sides, and a smooth strip of sand for intruder tracking.
Special National fencing Projects:
2011 - 2013 The Border with Egypt
Moseroth is one of the major contractors on the Israel–Egypt border (which has been given the project name ‘Sand Clock’). Construction of the main section of the border fence was completed in January 2013.
A number of countries, including the United States and India, have sent delegations to Israel to study border security and the various technologies used by the IDF to secure Israel's borders, including the Israel–Egypt border. Some of these countries may implement these technologies as part of their own border fences.
The 245 mile (394 km) fence from Rafah to Eilat took three years to construct at an estimated cost of NIS1.6 billion ($450 million), making it one of the largest projects in Israel's history. The fence is between five and seven meters high and used 35,000 tons of metal and steel.
2016 - The Border with Jordan
Moseroth supplied and built the fence for The Ministry of Defense project known as “Eastern Fence”. The aim of the project is to create a 30km security fence along the border with Jordan in the area between the Samar sand dunes north of Eilat in the Timna Valley. The purpose of the fence is to protect the eastern border against terrorism as well as against immigrants and it is being built at a cost of $300 million.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon visited the work site on the first day of construction. During his visit Netanyahu said, “Today we are starting to build a security fence along our eastern border, furthering the security fences that we have built on the border of Egypt and the Golan Heights”.
The Prime Minister went on to reference the European immigration crisis saying that “We have seen what happens to countries that have lost control over their borders - the combination of terrorism and economic migrants. That means we must ensure that Israel has control of its borders. The first section placed here will protect the airport. We do all of this without prejudice and in partnership with Jordan, we see her as a neighbor for peace.”
2013 - 2014 - The Border with Syria
Moseroth is one of the major contractors for the huge steel fence running along the border between the Golan Heights and Syria. The purpose of the fence is to prevent terrorism and economic migrants.
In just one year the border between Israel and Syria on the Golan Heights underwent great changes. The old fence which had been around for decades has been replaced. The new border was designed to prevent any unwanted border crossings, it stretches for over 90km and features a number of sophisticated observation devices
The new border fence is a source of great pride to the Northern Command. They say that it is the first time in the history of the State of Israel that the IDF succeeded in obtaining a huge budget of hundreds of millions of shekels to carry out essential work before any real threat came about as a result of the condition of the old fence.
The decision to erect the fence was made at the beginning of the civil war in Syria, when the Ministry of Defense was worried about attempts by terrorist squads to infiltrate settlements as well as the potential flow of refugees trying to flee to Israel.
