Spanish translation:la vanguardia y el limite/ los limites
Explanation:
frontline is definitely 'la vanguardia'

However, my own knowledge confirmed by Google would indicate 'fenceline'to be a boundary that 'marks as far as one can go', i.e. 'el límite'

ACTIVISTS USE IT - SEE
"...inside and outside the fenceline..." (BUT NO OTHER CONTEXTUAL CLUES)
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.socma.com/bond/arch...

THE MILITARY USE IT - SEE
An Israeli civilian suffered ... injuries from stones thrown ... in the Neve Dekalim area.Gunfire was directed .... towards IDF forces by the fenceline north of Kissufim.
http://www.google.com/search?q=cache:www.datelineisrael.com/...

It clearly means the line that limits opponents/separates 'enemies' from each other.

From Frontline to Fenceline, Activists in Military Project Fight to Protect Community"

De la vanguardia hasta los limites (permitidos)....
