Iraq will build a wall on the border with Syria to prevent movements of former ISIS jihadists and smugglers. It was announced by the commander of the ISF in Nineveh, Jabbar Taee. The project originally started in 2019 and involved barbed wire fences as well as trenches. Then, however, it was replaced by that of the wall. According to plans, the barrier will be three meters high and surrounded by a moat. In addition, observation towers will be established along the entire route from Iraqi Kurdistan to Anbar province, for a total of almost 600 kilometers. The infrastructure will be equipped with video surveillance systems with thermal and infrared cameras. Finally, each device will be interconnected thanks to servers that will allow real-time monitoring from the control rooms on possible terrorists’ trespassing attempts.
