TURKEY to Build BORDER MOAT- Fly Surveillance Balloons on Border With #ISIS
Remember when Barack Obama mocked Republicans saying they would only be satisfied when they get a moat with alligators on the southern border?
Yeah, well the US border with Mexico is still open.
This year another half a million illegals are expected to enter the US.
Turkey is building a two-fenced border system with a moat with Syria.
Hurriyet Daily reported:
Turkey plans to take yet another turn by flying surveillance balloons and building a two-fenced border system with a new moat as part of its efforts to beef up its border security with Syria, after accusations from the international community of not doing its best to stem the flow of foreign fighters from Turkey to its neighbor.
“What is important in the face of Daesh (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – ISIL) is to block the terrorists’ transit points and to have physical obstacles to this. A physical security system will be established at the border,” Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç told reporters during a break from a cabinet meeting attended by the commander of Turkey’s ground forces on late July 22.
Arınç said they discussed implementing an “integrated system” to secure “critical parts of the border” with war-torn Syria to counter the threat of ISIL, adding those measures would not include building walls between the people of two countries.
