Turkey finishes construction of 764-km security wall on Syria border

Build the damn wall. Pictures at the link.

"Turkey has completed the construction of a 764-kilometer (475-mile) concrete wall along its border with Syria, according to a Turkish official on Saturday
TOKI, the state backed housing developer, built 564-kilometer (350-mile) section of the wall, while the governorates of the border provinces built 200 kilometers (124 miles), the official told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity.

Ankara had launched the construction project in 2015 to build an 826-km (513-mi) wall on the Syrian border, as part of Turkey's measures to increase border security and combat smuggling and illegal border crossings.
Turkey shares a 911-kilometer (566-mile) border with Syria, which has been embroiled in a civil war since 2011."

How much trade does Turkey and Syria so with each other with Syria in a multi year violent civil war, with a dictator as its leader? Just asking.

No idea. But once again.

I hope that sinks in this time.

I guess then Turkey should be our guiding light as to all what is right in the world #-o

Ha! That's funny. Bilal Erdogan was trading with ISIS all along. They sent him stolen oil from occupied Syria and he paid in cash and in kind (usually weapons). Yup, Turkey was one of the great suppliers to ISIS. The Erdos are a-crapping themselves now. Wall indeed! Perhaps they think that is going to solve their internal problems...

Perhaps we could ask their contractor to bid on our border wall.
