Meshech and Tubal

(Ezek 38:2 KJV) Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

(Ezek 27:13 KJV) Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.

To be people who traded vessels of brass they needed to have the natural metals available in their countries.

Brass is made up of copper and zinc (with different types of brass adding other elements).

In Roman times much of the copper was obtained from the island of Cyprus (southern Turkey). - Universal Standard Encyclopedia

By 2,000 BC the use of metals had become widespread throughout an area stretching from western and central Anatolia [Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iraq, Iran] across the flanks of the Taurus [Southern Turkey] and Zagros [Western and Southern Iran] mountains and to the edge of the central desert of Iran. - Grolier Encyclopedia 1995
