A security wall will be built along this part of the border with Syria. Work for the project has already commenced.

The wall which will be built along the approximately 2.5 kilometer area between Turkey’s Cilvegozu border gate and Syria’s Bab al-Hawa border gate between Syria will isolate the region against illegal entries.

Customs and Trade Minister Hayati Yazici specified that protocol is being undertaken with the Armed Forces, and said that the area would be protected by military forces, a wire fence would enclose the area, a wall would be constructed, and imaging equipment would be installed as part of the project.

The security measures to be taken along at the border crossings along the Syrian border are not limited to these measures.
