Kurdistan is located in the Middle East between present Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Syria. It is situated in the north of Iraq, southeast of Turkey, northwest of Iran, and northeast of Syria.
Kurdistan has no political border, what exists is a partition of the land into three main territories. Those parts are linked to the border countries, i.e. Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Syria. This compulsory partition was done as a result of the Word War One aftermath.
Kurdistan is a mountainous country; the most famous mountain is Ararat, which is believed by scientists that it is the mountain at which Noah's Ark's ship has settled after the big flood.
The main sources of fresh water in the Middle East are in Kurdistan, the Euphrates and the Tigress which both come out form south east of Anadhol in Turkey and flow to Iraq and Syria.
Currently, Turkey is building 13 dams on these two rivers which is believed by year 2013 will give here power over most countries in the Middle East as providing fresh water will be the main problem between nations in the area.
