Sources from Algeria reported Wednesday that the Algerian government had started building a sand barrier on the borders with Libya and Tunisia so that it can separate itself from the danger and security threats, according to the sources.

The sources added that the barrier-wall will be up to 3 meters high and on top of it, there will be barbed wire and will go along the border by 350 km and with 3 meters depth.

The sources also added that the Algerian Defense Ministry is supervising the operation of the building and aims at shutting down routes for weapons smuggling from neighboring countries.
