Construction workers were seen completing a section of wall along the Turkish-Syrian border in the southern Turkish province of Hatay, Friday. The wall is part of a series of security measures introduced by the Turkish government along the Syrian border following a spike in violence in the country during summer. The wall was designed to prevent smugglers and refugees from crossing the border into Turkey from Syria. The wall is made out of individual concrete blocks that stand three metres tall (9,8 ft), two metres wide (6,6 ft) and weigh seven tonnes (15,432 lb). According to local media reports, the wall will be equipped with surveillance cameras once completed. Turkey is expected to receive up to 1.9 million refugees by the end of 2015, according to the UNHCR. Of that figure, 1.7 million are expected to arrive from Syria alone.
