Saudi Arabia to build barrier from Jordan to Kuwait

The Saudi royal family are building a 600-mile barrier to fortify the northern frontier of their kingdom.
 
The fence and ditch, punctuated with radar surveillance towers, command centres and guard posts, aims to protect the Saudis' oil-rich territory from invasion by the Islamic State insurgency.
 
Last week a suicide bombing and gun attack which killed two Saudi border guards and their commanding officer was styled by one analyst as the Islamic State's first attack on the kingdom.link
