The Israeli company that constructed the security barrier surrounding the Gaza Strip says it is eager to make Donald Trump’s proposed Mexico border wall a reality, should the Republican candidate win the White House in November.
“We’ve done it in the past, and we would definitely want to do it,” Saar Koursh, owner of Magal Security Systems Ltd., told Bloomberg last month. “The border business was down, but then came ISIS and the Syrian conflict. The world is changing, and borders are coming back big time.”
Koursh noted that in addition to the Gaza barrier, his company has built “smart fences” along Israel’s borders with Egypt and Jordan, and has been contracted to help protect the borders of Kenya, Somalia and other African nations.
Magal specializes in sophisticated border systems that include visual monitoring, as well as ground sensors and motion detection.
