Recently, the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation released statistics showing that nearly 12,000 Afghan migrants were deported from Iran and Pakistan over the past four days.

Today, the ministry stated in a newsletter that 11,997 Afghan migrants were expelled by the governments of Pakistan and Iran and have re-entered the country.

According to the newsletter, the expelled individuals entered the country between July 3rd and July 6th through the borders of Torghundi, Spin Boldak, Islam Qala-Herat, and Abreshim-Nimruz.

Despite international reactions, the trend of deporting Afghan migrants from Iran and Pakistan continues amid a humanitarian crisis.

The forced deportation of Afghan refugees from Iran and Pakistan has exacerbated the dire humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. Many of these deportees face uncertain futures, returning to a country plagued by conflict, economic instability, and a lack of basic services.

The sudden influx of returnees has already overwhelmed communities and humanitarian organizations struggling to provide support.

International human rights groups and organizations have condemned the mass deportations, citing concerns about the safety and well-being of the Afghan deportees.

They argue that such actions violate international law, particularly concerning the principle of non-refoulement, which prohibits the forced return of refugees to a country where they could face persecution or serious harm.
