Saudi Arabia's 'Great Wall' to keep out Isil

The Telegraph reports that Saudi Arabia is building a second defensive wall to keep Islamist terrorists out of it's lands and to prevent civilian deaths.
'The Saudis are building a 600-mile-long "Great Wall" - a combined fence and ditch - to separates the country from Iraq to the north.

Much of the area on the Iraqi side is now controlled by Isil, which regards the ultimate capture of Saudi Arabia, home to the "Two Holy Mosques" of Mecca and Medina, as a key goal.


The border zone now includes five layers of fencing with watch towers, night-vision cameras and radar cameras.


It is not the only fence with which Saudi Arabia has chosen to surround itself....

It has also created a physical barrier along parts of the even longer, 1,000-mile border with Yemen to the south.'

Oddly the BBC have not reported this news. Odd because they are so obsessed by Israel building a barrier to keep Palestinian Islamist terrorists out of Israel and prevent Israeli deaths.  Maybe the BBC consider Israeli deaths acceptable in a way that Saudi Arabian deaths wouldn't be.
