Turkey is building a separation wall in the vicinity of “Azaz” north of Aleppo.
The sources of monitored the movements of the Turkish forces, which in the past hours have intensified the transfer of cement blocks to the city of “Azaz” in the northern countryside of Aleppo, in preparation for the construction of a separation wall in the vicinity of the city that Turkey seeks to cut off from the Syrian territory.
The sources pointed out that large columns of trucks loaded with cement blocks accompanied by Turkish military vehicles entered the city of “Azaz” during Thursday and Wednesday, coinciding with the start of excavations in its vicinity in order to build a separation wall separating the area from the rest of the Syrian regions.
The sources indicated that the construction of the cement wall is currently focused on the “Azaz-Afrin” road, after the Turkish forces raised part of the wall from the direction of the “Azzaz National Hospital” located on the outskirts of the city towards the “Shatt” checkpoint of the Ankara militants on the same road.
The sources also indicated that the separation wall that the Turkish forces are working on is about 2 kilometers in length and 4 meters high, and will include most of the “Azaz-Afrin” road, approaching areas close to villages where the Syrian army and its auxiliary forces are present.
The process of building the separation wall comes in the context of the Turkification policy of the Turkish forces within the areas under their control in northern Syria, and as a new attempt by them to rob these areas by isolating them from the rest of the Syrian lands.
Turkey has previously used many methods to try to legitimize its control over the areas of the countryside of Aleppo, whether through its settlement operations by its armed factions in the “residential associations” that it’s building, or by expelling the indigenous people from their areas and housing the militants and their families instead, or through its continuous endeavor to build walls buffer and separate the areas under its control from the rest of the Syrian territories.
With all these methods and crimes committed by Turkey, Turkey aims to achieve a real demographic change within the areas under its control in northern Syria, in order to facilitate the process of annexing these areas to Turkish lands, while portraying the matter as a state of popular satisfaction with that step, but the fact confirms that satisfaction doesn’t come from the indigenous people, but from the militants of Ankara who settled in the area.
