Amid the continued deportation of Afghan migrants from Iran and Pakistan, the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations reported the expulsion of nearly three thousand Afghan migrants from these countries.

The ministry announced on Saturday, June 8, through a press release, that 207 Afghan migrants were deported from Pakistan, and 1,640 were deported from Iran.

According to the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations, returnees arrived in the country on Thursday and Friday.

Based on the ministry’s statement, after deportation, migrants entered the country through the borders of Islam Qala, Torghundi, and Spin Boldak.

Afghan migrants are being expelled from Pakistan at a time when the deportation of Afghan migrants from neighboring countries, especially Iran and Pakistan, has seen a significant increase in recent months.

The dire situation of Afghan refugees in Afghanistan is exacerbated by the escalating violence and instability in the country. Many returnees face challenges reintegrating into a society plagued by conflict and economic hardships.

Forced deportations add to the plight of Afghan refugees, who often return to a country where basic services are lacking, employment opportunities are scarce, and security concerns persist.

The Taliban regime, already struggling to address internal displacement and refugee influxes, faces added pressure as more Afghan migrants are forcibly returned from neighboring countries, straining already limited resources and infrastructure.
