Turkey to establish smart towers on Syrian border

Yeni Şafak – Turkish Defense Ministry said that it plans to establish a smart tower every 300 meters along the border with Syria to prevent illegal crossing. Turkey has already sealed hundreds of kilometers of the border, either with concrete blocks or wire fencing. In the border city of Kilis, the construction of a concrete wall is nearly complete as the ministry started to build smart watch towers at 300-meter intervals.
