Turkey bolsters security on #Syria, #Iraq borders
ANKARA — Turkish sources said the military has sent reinforcements along key points of the nation’s 600-kilometer border with Syria.
They said the reinforcements were sent after fighters and operatives of the Kurdish Workers Party were believed to have infiltrated Turkey from Syria.
Turkey has also reinforced troops along the border with Iraq, which harbors an estimated 3,000 PKK fighters in the Kandil mountains. The sources said troops, helicopters and armored vehicles have arrived in the border provinces of Hakari and Sirnak.
