To conserve resources, southern command decided to establish a team spraying, which will do the job at a minimal cost. “Buy on the pesticide water tanker, told IDF site אג”ם Engineering Officer of the southern command, Maj. Kobi Cohen, “the deputies sprayed a military engineering training by the Ministry of agriculture. It solves a problem financially and operationally “.

The vegetation is important not only to prevent the infiltration of terrorists, but also as part of coping with the threat of charges set in this area. In the coming months will begin paving project
Timeline of linen (the enemy) to prevent or detect IEDs.
A plan to put layers of stone near the fence, to allow easier detection of IEDs during operational tours.

The two projects will perform engineering forces southern command, however, as part of budget efficiency of command engineering. “We have identified a significant seat-2012 budget comes to civilian contractors,” said major, “in 2013 will reduce the use of contractors and we make more work for ourselves, based on military” tools.
