|Riyadh, Saudi Arabia|
In an effort to defend itself from the IS threat and further attacks, the kingdom launched a massive project to construct a "Great Wall" along it's northern border with Iraq, where IS presence is heavy.
Proposed in 2006, the border zone entails five layers of fencing, supplemented by watch towers, radar cameras, night-vision security, and a heavy presence of extra Saudi troops, according to the report.
The wall is set to extend nearly 1000-km and will combine fence and ditch barriers along the northern Saudi border.
Riyadh hopes that the completed project will fend off IS threats and keep the relatively closed kingdom, closed indeed.
US republicans will probably be watching this to see if they can do something similar to keep Mexicans and Central Americans out as they doggedly try to hold on to a way of life that has already gone.
