A portable concrete wall is being built on the border with Syria in the southern province of Hatay as part of security measures.
The wall, which is composed of concrete 3-meter-long blocks, is being built in the border town of Reyhanlı’s Kuşaklı village in an effort to prevent illegal crossings and smuggling.
The wall will reportedly be 1,200-meter-long and weigh nine tons when it is finished. The concrete blocks will able to be transferred when necessary.
The construction began two days ago and 150 concrete blocks have been placed so far.
