Donald Trump’s building a wall with Mexico is trigger a domino effect. Now, countries following his immigration bans, and now he seemingly inspired Saudi Arabia, to build a massive wall to stop the flow of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists entering Saudi Arabia and attacking the Saudi borders.
The border includes five impenetrable layers of fencing and barbed wires, along with watch towers, night-vision, and radar cameras. Riyadh has also deployed an extra 30,000 troops to the area.
The country can’t afford an insurgency or a civil war inside its borders, as besides the massive oil resources; its economy heavily depends on the holy pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina by the Muslims during the Hajj season.
The state is also in the planning stage to build itself even longer physical barrier along parts of the 1000-mile border with Yemen to the south as they are threatened by the Houthi rebels fighting against the onslaught started by the Saudi government themselves.
