Iran's border police chief said Turkey is responsible for the death of Iranian border guards in a recent terror attack along the common frontier and for letting terror groups operate in its border areas. Two Iranian border guards were killed and several were wounded when PJAK terrorists attacked them on Saturday while they were changing posts. "We consider Turkey accountable for this act of terrorism," Tasnim News Agency quoted Lieutenant General Qasem Rezaei as saying Sunday.  PJAK is an offshoot of Turkey's banned Kurdistan Workers' Party and is known for carrying out random hit-and-run attacks against Iranian targets, after which they retreat to their lairs in Turkey and Iraq.  They carry out attacks in parts of West Azarbaijan Province which borders Iraq, Turkey and Armenia.  Rezaei said, "Unfortunately, in the areas bordering Turkey, we witness activities by terrorist groups under various pretexts."
