Ceuta Reinforces the Border with an Anti-Climb Netting

Anti-Climbing Fence Netting

The Spanish exclave of Ceuta in northern Morocco has begun to fortify its border with anti-climbing netting. The decision was approved by the Council of Ministers of Spain and the workers have already begun to strengthen the border. The mesh does not allow you to hold on to the fence due to the use of stronger metals and has much smaller openings that do not allow climbing.

The project is part of a larger plan by the Spanish Interior Ministry to fortify the border, which includes the replacement of former concertina razor wire fences removed by Spain. The estimated cost of reinforcing the border with a net was over 4 million euros. In addition to these measures, the authorities have also deployed drones to detect any illegal migrants arriving long before they reach the border.

Last Monday, the Spanish government announced its decision to implement a new entry and exit control system that it says will automate the traveler check-in process. As a popular destination for migrants seeking to enter Europe, border protection has long been a priority for the Spanish government and its cooperation with Morocco. At the same time, Egoza razor wire, installed on a double border fence, was previously used to protect the border.
