Explosion shuts down Iran-Turkey natural gas pipeline-Kurdish rebels were blamed

With Turkish continued bombardment of Kurdish positions in Iraq and Syria and Iran now in solid control of the Kirkuk oil fields and Iranian economy in complete control of the Sulaymaniyah economy it seems that the Kurdish groups in the region have finally realized that their dream of a greater kurdistan is done.

Kurdish elements will fight against Turkish and Iranian interests in their areas.

The Article states:  “Turkey’s energy minister says an explosion on a natural gas pipeline between Iran and Turkey caused a large fire and shut down the flow of gas.  Taner Yildiz said Tuesday the explosion was in Agri province, some 15 kilometers from the Iranian border, and he suggested Kurdish rebels were to blame.”

NEC-SE askes who is responsible for the security and the maintenance of this pipeline?  Is is Turkey, Iraq, or Iran?  Keep an eye on this friction point.
