Turkey builds wall in token effort to secure border with Syria

Published: 05.05.14, 14:55 / Israel News

REYHANLI - Turkey has started building a new wall along a fragment of its southeastern border with Syria as it struggles against smuggling, illegal migration and the threat from al-Qaida fighters among Syria's rebel ranks.

 

Slabs of concrete have sprung up in recent days, snaking for just over one kilometer over the rolling hills of Hatay province, a finger of land which was part of Syria until the late 1930s, dotted with villages that have thrived on an illicit cross-border trade in everything from fuel to cigarettes.
