Critics worldwide have for decades been bashing Israel for building a large concrete border wall to protect its citizens from Muslim terrorist attacks – a regular occurrence before the wall went up. But there’s not a peep out of the media or politicians when Muslim countries such as Turkey, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia do the same thing.
Global Security Turkey has constructed a 765-kilometer (475-mile) concrete wall along the country’s border with Syria, the Anadolu Agency reported on 09 June 2018, citing an anonymous Turkish official.
The wall, which incorporates layers of physical, electronic and advanced technology, was constructed in six Turkish provinces — Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis, Hatay, Mardin, and Sirnak — in order to prevent illegal crossings and smuggling, and to foster security of the border with Syria. The barrier covers almost the whole length of the Turkish-Syrian border, which is 911 kilometers long.
HRW What’s more, Turkish authorities in Istanbul and nine provinces on or near the Syrian border have stopped registering all but a handful of recently arrived Syrian asylum seekers. The suspension is leading to unlawful deportations, coerced returns to Syria, and the denial of health care and education.
The suspension of registration is Turkey’s latest effort to deny new asylum seekers protection. Over the past three years, Turkey has sealed off its border with Syria, while Turkish border guards continue to carry out mass summary pushbacks and to kill and injure Syrians as they try to cross.
Israel built a barrier to separate herself from murderers, jihadists and suicide bombers and the world goes into meltdown.
JDU Walls elsewhere in the world run for thousands of miles no one utters a sound. Where are the Greens, where are these do-gooders and ‘Palestinian’ supporters ?
Israel’s southern barrier proves 100 percent effective in preventing infiltration with a recent report by the country’s Population and Immigration Authority showing that not a single terrorist managed to get into the country illegally in the past 12 months.
Israel is now building a vast underground wall around Gaza on Thursday, which military officials said would once and for all stop Hamas burrowing attack tunnels into Israeli territory.
The £500 million subterranean concrete barrier will run for 40 miles along the entire Israeli-Gaza border and is the first underground border wall of its kind in the world. It is intended to prevent Hamas and other Islamist militant groups from using tunnels to launch surprise attacks into southern Israel.
Israeli officials refused to say how deep the wall would go but it is believed to be up to 100 meters below ground in some places.
Where is the hue and cry against the news that Saudi Arabia has built a 600-Mile (965 klms) ‘Great Wall’ to shield itself from ISIS? Not a peep.
Haaretz Saudi Arabia’s sophisticated fence along its northern border to secure the desert kingdom “against infiltrators and smugglers,” according to the Saudi Press Agency. The kingdom already has a wall along part of its 1,800 kilometre border with Yemen.
Saudi Arabia ‘s border fence market is larger than the U.S./Mexican & U.S./Canadian border fence markets combined. It is, in fact, the largest border fence market in the world! The kingdom expects the fence to cut the “number of infiltrators, drug, arms and cattle smugglers to zero,” SPA said.
So far, the new fence runs for 20 kilometres (12 miles) north from the area around the border town of al-Qaim, which Iraqi forces retook from ISIS in November. In total the frontier stretches for some 600 kilometres.
The project will include eight command and control center, 32 rapid response centers, three rapid intervention squads, 38 back and front gates, 78 monitoring towers, 10 monitoring and surveillance vehicles, 1,450,000 meters of fiber optics networks and 50 radars.
Iraq has begun building a massive border fence to prevent Islamic State militant group (ISIS) fighters from entering the country from Syria.
Al-Araby The electrified, barbed wire barrier so far includes a nearly 20 feet-wide trench and begins at the formerly ISIS-held border town of Al-Qaim, running about 12 miles north along Iraq’s vast border with Syria, where the last of the jihadis that once claimed half of both nations are believed to be hiding.
Iraq has begun building a fence along its border with Syria to stop Islamic State group militants crossing into the country, a border guards spokesman said on Sunday.
The frontier barrier includes a six-metre-wide trench and involves thermal cameras and drones scanning the border for militants attempting to cross from Syria.
