BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Turkey completed construction on the massive wall they built along the Syrian border, Turkish officials announced on Saturday.

According to the Turkish officials, the new wall is stretches an estimated 764 kilometers (475 miles) along the Syrian-Turkish border.

Since Syria and Turkey share a 911 km border, this wall will completely seal off the provinces of Gaziantep, Kilis, Hatay, Mardin, Sirnak, and Sanliurfa.

The wall was constructed due to Turkey’s security concerns across the vast Syrian border; it has replaced the previous fences that were used to separate their country from Syria.

The physical layer includes modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks.

Modular walls are being erected along the Turkish-Syrian borderline with seven-ton mobile blocks, two meters wide and three meters high. The blocks have also been topped with a one-meter-high razor wire.

It’s not working. The Turks are still crossing the border to occupy Syrian land and to aid Turkmen rebels.

This is ridiculous : ISIS/Sinai hides in Gaza, protected by Hamastan authority. Actually, it even wasn’t far IDF started a massive aerial campaign to demolish ISIS, this was prevented by 2 events : 1.) Russian intervention 2.) Obongo’s $38.1bln checkin military help and the opening of an US military base into Israel (1st time they did it). Actually, Israelis have many times made clear that, despite they didn’t liked Assad at all, it wasn’t their interest to end with Syria under the control of roaches like al-Baghdadi or al-Joulani. C’mon, these creeps are even worst than Hamas. At least, with… Read more »

IMHO, the Trump wall is nowhere near from being built 😉 USA can’t do without Mexican ilegals. ’twas just a prop to gain the far-right vote 😉 He doesn’t gives a fück about it. In fact, if you go back in time, you will discover a Trump far less loud-mouthed and far less extremist, actually, he’s more playing a character, even copying Mussolini’s grimaces but he’s not the character he plays. Look at the treatment of NoKo crisis : directly patterned on Nixon with Mao! That’s called the madman’s politic. Events went EXACTLY the way I planned. Actually, had Killary… Read more »
