Now they will have to "support refugees" in Belarus also.
Nah, they’ll cut Turkey loose once enough years has passed. Turkey will be stuck with the refugees. Belarus is actually doing something beneficial for Turkey.

145-km wall on Turkey's eastern border prevents illegal activities​

The 145-kilometer (90-mile) wall that was recently completed along the Ağrı-Iğdır section of Turkey's eastern border with Iran has proven successful in preventing irregular migrants and smugglers, especially terrorists, from entering the country.

Every precaution is being taken at the border to prevent illegal crossings and eliminate terrorists. Turkish security forces are able to instantly detect individuals attempting to illegally enter Turkey from Iran through the Integrated Security System while they are still outside the border.

Border units are on alert around-the-clock, tasked with catching irregular migrants then delivering them to the relevant institutions.

Thanks to the capabilities of the border security system, security forces detected 1,693 irregular migrants approaching the border in 85 incidents in the region in the last month and prevented them from entering the country.

Personnel overseeing the manned and unmanned watchtowers, which are deployed at different points on the road along the wall, keep their eyes fixed on the border, ready to report any violations, as security forces patrol the road in armored vehicles manufactured with domestically produced resources. Both are on constant alert, ready to prevent any threat.

In addition, wire and panel fences have been fixed to the top of the wall to discourage those attempting to illegally climb over it.

The project was initiated in 2015 with the aim of stemming the ever-increasing flow of irregular mass migration along Turkey's 2,949 kilometers of land borders. Since 2015, 837 kilometers of Turkey's 1,295-kilometer southern border have been sealed with a border wall. In the east, walls have been erected along 168 kilometers of the 1,182-kilometer border since work began in 2017.

The construction of a wall along 73 kilometers of Turkey's 2,477-kilometer eastern and southern land borders, all neighboring Iran, also continued this year. Work is ongoing to bolster the 238-kilometer stretch along the Iranian border in the east and 33 kilometers on the border shared with Iraq in the south.

Faced with a potential migrant wave due to the instability in Afghanistan, Turkey has maximized measures on its eastern border. Turkey is continuing efforts to bolster the security of its border with Iran to prevent any new influx of migrants. The beefed-up border measures in Turkey, which already hosts nearly 4 million Syrian refugees and is a staging post for many migrants trying to reach Europe, began as the Taliban started advancing in Afghanistan and took over Kabul.

Turkey is not the only country putting up barriers. Its neighbor Greece recently completed a 40-kilometer fence and surveillance system to keep out migrants who manage to enter Turkey and attempt to reach the European Union.

Authorities say there are 182,000 registered Afghan migrants in Turkey and up to an estimated 120,000 more unregistered ones. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan urged European countries to take responsibility in the event of an influx, warning that Turkey had no intention of becoming "Europe's migrant storage unit."

Turkey has been a key transit point for asylum-seekers attempting to cross into Europe to start new lives, especially those fleeing war and persecution. Concerns have risen over a possible spike in migrants from Afghanistan, due to the United States' pullout from the country and the following surge of Taliban attacks. Turkey has made it clear that it will not bear the burden of the migration crises experienced as a result of the decisions of third countries.

Turkey hosts nearly 4 million refugees – more than any country in the world. After the Syrian civil war broke out in 2011, Turkey adopted an “open-door policy” for people fleeing the conflict, granting them “temporary protection” status. Afghans are believed to be the second-largest refugee community in Turkey after Syrians. Many of the migrants arriving via Iran are heading for Istanbul to find work or passage to another coastal city from which to embark for Europe.

WTF .
refugees without assault rifles aren't considered as refugees in Türkiye...
But if you don't have AK-47 any moment you can be labeled as a terrorist.

How many AK-47 have been entered with refugees in to Turkey


RIP



Illegal immigrants killed a Turkish soldier .
Infant Sergeant Savaş Dinç while trying to maintain Turkish borders, was martyred as a result of the fire opened by illegal immigrants trying to enter Turkey .

What is even worse is that if such soldier tried to protect himself, responded, and ended up killing him, the TSK and border security will start to be labelled as genociders, refugee killers, and barbarians etc....

No, pretty sure you are allowed to defend yourself against hostile fire. All they need to do is produce video footage to shut up naysayers.
