Turkey Completes Half Construction of Turkey-Syria Border Wall

ANKARA - More than half of construction of a concrete wall along the Turkish-Syrian border was completed, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on Sunday.
According to Ergun Turan, the president of Turkey's state-owned housing agency (TOKI), 290 km of the wall has finished along the Syrian border.
Turkey planned to build 511 km concrete wall along Turkey's border provinces.
The construction is ongoing in cooperation of TOKI and the ministries of defense and finance.
Seven tons of mobile blocks, which are 2-meter wide and 3-meter high, have been topped with one-meter high razor wire, the report said.
The Defense Minister Fikri Isik said in November that the construction of a concrete wall along the Turkish-Syrian border will be completed in the first half of 2017.
Turkey says the separation wall will help enhance border security against the Kurdish military and other terrorists. (Xinhua)
