The area was an Israeli laid AP mine field. South of Ein Yahav Village in the Arava Dessert. Total size of the Site – 860,000 m².
This project was a continuation of the Sapir Project carried out in 2012.
As the nearby Arava River over flooded thousands of mines had migrated from their original position and a larger area amongst the riverbanks was contaminated. This Mine field marks the Border between Israel and Jordan, As these countries now enjoy a peace agreement and due to the dangers of the mined area expanding with each flood – MOD has acknowledged these minefields as deemed unnecessary to the country’s defense and therefore were contracted by INMAA for demining.
Clearance of some 30,000 A.P mines amongst the Israeli Jordanian River. The clearance requirements were for Mechanical Soil Separation on the mined CHA and clearance by means of towed Sifters on the SHA to which the mines had migrated.
Mechanical Soil separation by screening and crushing. Ground Preparation by mechanical rakes to soften the land and break its crust. Mechanical Clearance by towed Sifters.
4 months in 2013.
