Although President Erdoğan claims the Islamic State no longer poses a serious threat, his regime is building a 500-mile wall along its border with Syria to defend against ISIS militants.

The wall will cover Turkey's entire border with Syria. When complete, it will include massive concrete blocks topped with razor wire, hundreds of border towers, and a security road with frequent military patrols.

Its construction is funded in part by the European Union.
