The Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik stated in the Turkish parliament, that the wall will be built along the entire Syrian-Turkish border, which is 828 kilometers long. The purpose of construction is to guarantee the security of the Republic.
First of all, the wall should prevent the penetration of Kurdish militants and ISIS terrorists into Turkish territory.
The wall will be equipped with lighting, a sensory system and cameras. The control at the border will be carried out with the help of drone.
According to the Turkish Minister, the countries on the borders with which Turkey can also build such walls, include Iran and Iraq.
