Turkey to Complete Syrian Border Wall Within 5 Months

 In case you are unaware? Or a newer reader? There is an entire post here devoted to the Turkey/Syrian Border wall.  August 29/2016 : Turkey’s Border Wall with Syria

Alongside additional mentions in older posts.

A concrete wall being built to stop illegal crossings along the length of Turkey's 900-km (560-mile) border with Syria will be finished by the end of February, an official at a Turkish state institution with knowledge of the project said on Wednesday.

Construction on a border wall to combat smuggling and illegal migration started as early as 2014.

The official declined to give an estimate for the cost of construction. But the mass circulation Hurriyet newspaper said that including a road for military patrols planned alongside it, the wall was expected to cost 2 billion lira (£515.4 million).

Made up of seven-tonne portable blocks topped with razor wire, the wall will be three metres (10 feet) high and two metres (6.5 feet) wide. The official said private companies would be hired once construction tenders were completed.

Hurriyet cited the head of TOKI as saying that 200-250 concrete blocks were currently being produced daily at five work sites, and that the latest construction work had begun around 20 days ago.
New watchtowers on roads patrolled by armoured vehicles have already been erected along the border this year as part of increased security measures.

Claims of Turkey doing nothing to secure their border really don't hold water.

  3. Wonder if the "private company" building the concrete wall is Lafarge...a card-carrying member of the MIC. Something BIG is definitely going to happen in October. I have a very good link to a video that describes options.

  4. Something like a NATO intervention? Based upon the number of allegations being made in the past week. Russia and Syria have been targeting hospitals, water infrastructure, schools, children, and, family pets intentionally. And we've got the tapes to prove it.
