USAID officially ceases assistance in West Bank and Gaza

Bitcoin could be the financial savior for cash-strapped terror group Hamas

The Defense Ministry announced Sunday that it began building the above-ground portion of the Gaza border barrier, Haaretz.com, an Israeli news outlet reported.

The fence is created to "prevent terrorists from Gaza from penetrating into our territory on the ground", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told media before the weekly cabinet meeting, the website France24 reported.

"I would also like to make it clear: If the quiet is not maintained in Gaza, we will make the decisions even in the elections period and will not hesitate to act", the prime minister added.

Former Mayor of Shiloh, Israel David Rubin weigh in on the effectiveness of border walls.

The new wall will be 65 kilometres long, made from galvanised steel and will be around six-metres-high. Additionally, the western portion of the barrier will connect to the new sea barrier being built by the Israel Defense Forces.

It is being built along the same line cut by an underground barrier that is being constructed to prevent the infiltration of cross-border terror tunnels. The project is estimated to cost the equivalent of about $833 million US dollars.

The UN also pledged to start temporary jobs programmes to benefit thousands of unemployed Gazans before the end of the month, in cooperation with the Palestinian Ministry of Labour in Gaza and global NGOs.

Israeli soldiers have killed at least 247 Palestinians since the demonstrations on the border with Israel erupted - mostly by sniper fire. Israel has accused Palestinian Authority officials, including its president Mahmoud Abbas, of inciting hatred and of being responsible for terrorist attacks.

They discussed earlier Friday with Islamic Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh on the reinforcement of a calm understanding reached with Israel in November, according to Haniyeh.
