Turkish mass media have found the reason of their army’s failure
in the fight against Kurdish rebels. Sabah newspaper reports that
Turkey blames Armenia and Iran for its failures as they allegedly
supply the PKK fighters with Russian and Iranian weapons.
Turkish newspaper writes that during the recent operation conducted by
the Turkish security forces in the Hakkari province the PKK militants
used M-DN 11 grenades made in Iran and F-1 grenades made in Russia.
The captured militants say they have been recently receiving assistance
from Iran. Wounded Kurdish fighters receive treatment at Iranian
hospitals in Urmia Province.
In addition, over 400 fighters crossed the Iranian-Armenian border
as well as the border near Nakhijevan recently, the paper writes.
