Following the expulsion of Afghan migrants from Iran and Pakistan, the Ministry of Refugees announced the expulsion of more than two hundred individuals from Iran and Pakistan.

On Saturday, the ministry stated in a newsletter that 130 Afghan migrants residing in Iran returned to their home country after being expelled. The ministry noted that these migrants returned to the country via the Islam Qala-Herat border crossing on March 2.

Additionally, the ministry reported that 96 Afghan migrants were expelled from Pakistan on March 2 and 3 by the Pakistani government and subsequently entered the country through the Torkham border crossing.

The Torkham border authorities in Nangarhar Province stated that 19 families, totaling 96 individuals, returned forcibly from Pakistan.

The ministry’s newsletter mentioned that the returning migrants reentered the country voluntarily and forcibly.

This comes amid a recent intensification of the expulsion process of migrants from Pakistan and Iran, highlighting a concerning trend.

In addition to the forced deportation of Afghan refugees from Pakistan and Iran, Afghanistan is grappling with a dire humanitarian crisis within its borders.

The lack of essential resources such as foodstuffs, water, medical care, and job opportunities has exacerbated the suffering of the Afghan populace.

Many families struggle to secure basic necessities, leading to widespread hunger and malnutrition among vulnerable communities.

The healthcare system is overwhelmed, unable to cope with the increasing demand for medical services amidst widespread poverty and unemployment. As a result, the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan continues to deteriorate, requiring urgent international assistance and support.
