Seymour Hersh, an American journalist, claims that PKK terrorists and its sister organization, PEJAK (PJAK), have been receiving support from the US and Israel.“In the past months, Israel and the United States have been working together in support of PKK and its Iranian offshoot PEJAK, I was told by a government consultant with close ties to the Pentagon,” said Pulitzer Prize-winning, Seymour Hersh.In an interview with Turkish daily Zaman, the leading American investigative journalist also revealed that the White House has lost control over PKK which has gone rogue.
Earlier, the renowned American journalist accused Washington and the Zionist regime of providing PKK and PEJAK with ‘training and equipment’ in a secret ploy to destabilize the region.
Commenting on PEJAK, Hersh asserted that Washington considers it as “part of an effort to explore alternative means of applying pressure on Iran.”
The Party for Free Life in Kurdistan (PEJAK) has been behind a string of deadly attacks on security forces in northwestern Iran. PKK and its PEJAK wing are considered a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union. The US promised to remove the PKK camps in Iraq yet no concrete step has been taken. Iran officialy accused the United States of supporting terrorism in the region.
