The Turkish authorities started construction of a wall along the country’s border with Iran as part of its efforts against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), local media reported Tuesday.
The construction began in the eastern Agri province, the Hurriyet newspaper reported. The wall is expected to be 10-feet high and 6.5-feet wide.
In May, media reported that Ankara planned to build a 43.5-mile wall on the border with Iran as part of security measures. Currently, Turkey is at the final stage of reinforcing the Syrian border with a 559-mile long wall.
Tensions between Ankara and the PKK escalated in 2015, after a three-year ceasefire between the two sides collapsed.
