While a wave of knife-stabbing and car-ramming attacks has engulfed Israel over the past few months,  the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund (KKL- JNF) has not forgotten the potential threat of Gaza rocket attacks on southern Israel’s residents.

Over the past few years, the KKL-JNF partnership has used its specialization and expertise in the planting of trees and forests over many decades, to implement a forest project that would provide some kind of security buffer for the Israeli communities located on the border with the Gaza Strip.

“The people living in communities bordering on Gaza are constantly exposed to artillery and missile attacks, when driving along local roads, to and from their fields, and even within the boundaries of their own communities,” said KKL media adviser Omri Benhanan to Tazpit Press Service (TPS).
