This comes only a few days after the Sousse attack which claimed 30 Britons along the beach.

Why Countries are Investing More on Moat-Border-Walls
By having a well-established moat wall along the borders of countries which have been identified as militia group soft targets, this enables such countries to have total surveillance on individuals crossing the border.
Saudi-Arabia is already building a 600 mile wall to shield itself against Islamic State. The border wall has five layers of fencing with watch towers, night-vision cameras and radar cameras. There are also troops who have been deployed in the area.
Kenya also embarked on building a border wall along the porous Kenya-Somali border against the invasion by Somali based militants, Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahedin.
The wall is set to neutralize the great threats along the border which has lead to a huge number of Al Shabaab militants crossing over to Kenya.
Kenya, Somalia, Tunisia, Nigeria and Sudan are some of the countries which have been identified as terrorist soft spot targets, thus require stronger measures to protect their citizens.
Building these walls could also help cut down on the rate of black market business conducted along the countries’ borders.
