Israel to raise the height of its border fence

The latest wave of Africans trying to break into Israel via Egypt are bringing ladders.
For new readers we have a category here at RRW entitled, ‘Israel and refugees,‘ although there has been so much news from the ‘Invasion of Europe’ lately we haven’t said much about the smaller invasion of Israel.
Here is news from Breitbart that could be used for guidance for Trump’s wall:
TEL AVIV – Israel is set to raise the height of its fence along the Egyptian border in an effort to keep out migrants, defense officials said Tuesday.
The fence will be raised an additional meter, making it six meters (19.7 feet) high. This follows an increase in African migrants entering the country over the past year.
The army said that a series of additional prevention methods will be put in place to reduce the number of illegal border crossings.
The current fence, which was built between 2010-2014, has been largely successful in preventing migrant incursions, the IDF said. In 2014, only 14 people made it across the border, compared with 12,000 in 2010. However, in 2015, some 200 migrants made it over the fence, often with the use of ladders.
