    Those are called Hescos. They are made of thick canvas with thick wire mesh wrapped around them. They fill them up with dirt and rocks and use them as walls, barriers etc.. They work pretty good. They will stop pretty much any small arms as well as mortars and smaller rockets. They are everywhere over here and in Iraq.
