Baku, April 11, AZERTAC 

Turkey’s Defense Ministry on Tuesday said more than half of a security wall along the country’s border with Syria had been finished, according to Anadolu Agency.

The ministry said 556 kilometers (345 miles) of the “physical security systems project” had been built.

Turkey shares a nearly 900-kilometer (559 mile) border with war-torn Syria.

The barrier’s construction is being carried out with the aid of Turkey’s TOKI housing agency; it will be 826 kilometers long (513 miles) when completed.
