Turkish soldiers patrol with military vehicles next to a wall on the Turkey-Iran border line in Van city, Turkey.

Turkey completed 63 km of the modular concrete wall, which it started to build on the 560-kilometers-long border with Iran, in Van. Border security is being increased to a higher level in order to prevent illegal crossings. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
