To stem the flow of foreign fighters passing through the Turkish border, security forces built a 23-kilometer-long concrete wall, a 108-kilometer-long fence, 386 kilometers of ditches and an 80 kilometer-long embankment where illegal trespassing could occur. Apart from this, the electricity is provided along a 423-kilometer-long border.
In August 2015, Turkish authorities built a 3-meter long concrete wall along the Syrian border. The construction in the ReyhanlÄ± district of Hatay province came as part of the tightened security measures along the border following a series of terrorist attacks starting with the SuruÃ§ suicide bombing on July 20 that killed 33 people.
Turkey spent almost $ 102.77 million for this measures that helpedÂ Turkish Armed Forces to capture 909 foreign fighters from 54 different countries this year according to official numbers.
