Al-Qamishli: Turkey builds wall to stem illegal immigration

KURDWATCH, November 1, 2013—Since early October 2013, the Turkish government has been building a wall along the Syrian border between the cities of al‑Qamishli and Nusaybin. According to media reports, the wall will be approximately two meters high and with barbed wire placed on top. Thus far there have been no official statements regarding the construction of the wall. According to information from the Turkish government, an additional wall, which will be approximately two and a half kilometers long, is planned in Hatay Province. It is unclear what such measures can accomplish in light of the nine hundred kilometer border between Syria and Turkey.
