A factory in a village near the Syrian border is packaging and packing Lego bricks for the Turkish government, according to an article in Turkish media.
The article says that the factory was founded in September and has been in operation since late November, and that it is building an assembly plant in a factory in the city of Silopi.
It was previously known as the Lego factory, according the article.
A Lego spokesman said that the article was “an error.”
The article was published online by Hurriyet, the Turkish newspaper owned by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).
The newspaper did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The factory is located near a Turkish border town of Cizre, which borders Syria.
The Silopis district, which has been a major hub for rebel groups fighting to topple President Bashar al-Assad, is located along a road that runs through a neighborhood where some of the factories are located.
The Turkish government is working to build a bridge that will link Cizres village to Silopisi, where the factory will be located.

Turkish government spokesman Zafer Cagaptay told the state-run Anadolu Agency that the Silopistans factory was not related to the Silopes factory in Cizremes, which was set up in the same year as the Silope factory.
“It is a subsidiary of the Silops factory, which is located in Silopes,” he said.
The news comes as Turkey continues to fight the ongoing conflict in Syria, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.
In September, Turkish security forces reportedly killed two Syrian rebels in a joint operation near Silopisa, a town in southern Turkey.
The two were shot and killed while they were preparing to attack an ISIL position in Silope.
A third rebel, a Turkish national, was wounded in the shooting, according a statement from the Turkish military.
Turkish officials have denied that Turkey was behind the killings.
