Turkish authorities intend to construct more walls along its borders with Syria in a bid to clamp down on illegal border crossings.
Earlier, Turkey erected more than 10 km of walls along the borders, equipped with security measure.
The length and place of walls to be constructed haven’t been disclosed yet. The Turkish borders with the war-torn Syria extend to more than 900 km.
The portable walls will be supported with strict security measures like thermal cameras.
More than 500,000 Syrian refugees are now living in camps inside Turkey after fleeing the battles in bordering Syrian provinces, mainly Idlib, Aleppo and Al-Raqqa.
The borders have been the spot of fierce clashes that took place recently between the Islamic State and Kurdish fighters in Tal Abyad and Ayn Arab (Kobani).
Since the Syrian war broke out in 2011, Turkey served as the lifeline for rebels fighting to topple President Assad, allowing fighters and supplies to reach deep in Syrian territories. Extremist militants fighting for al-Qaeda Syrian branch, Jabhet al-Nusra, and the Islamic State use Turkish territories to cross to Syria.
Experts say that the rapid advance of Syria’s Kurds in Tal Abyad has alarmed Ankara, promoting policymakers to consider constructing more walls in fear of a potential establishment of Kurdish state along its borders.
