      Bereaved Brother: Border Fence Too Late for Us

      Work has begun on a new border fence, made out of concrete, that will separate between the Lebanese army and Hizbullah terrorists and Israeli soldiers and residents of the town of Metula. The fence is being built in the same place where, two years ago, Lieutenant Colonel Dov Harari was killed by Lebanese soldiers during military operations at the border.

      His brother, Shmuel Harari, told Arutz Sheva on Wednesday that as far as the family is concerned the fence came too late. “For us the government and security forces did not work properly and the incident could have been prevented,” he said.

      Harari said that Israel only remembers to do things after disasters happen and added, “There were cameras there all the time and it could be seen how the Lebanese soldiers were taunting our troops. My brother was always at the front. My father told them last year that a concrete wall should be built there but was ignored.”
