Abu Zeid Confirms Egypt Installing Wall Along Gaza Border
Commissioner-general of the UN Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA), Karen Abu Zeid, confirmed reports stating that Egypt is installing an iron barrier along its border with the Gaza Strip, and added that the United States is financing the project.
Speaking at a forum organized by the American University in Cairo, Abu Zeid said that the barrier was made in the United States, and that it is more secure that the Bar Lev Line, built by Israel along the eastern coast of the Suez Canal after it captured the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt during the 1967 Six-Day War.
