The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations of Afghanistan has announced that nearly two thousand Afghan migrants have returned to the country after being expelled from Pakistan and Iran.

The ministry stated on Wednesday, February 21st, in a statement that around one thousand six hundred and sixty-six Afghan migrants entered the country on Tuesday.

The statement said that these migrants returned to the country via the Islam Qala border in Herat province.

At the same time, the ministry clarified that the returning migrants entered the country voluntarily and involuntarily.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations also announced that two hundred and twenty-four Afghan migrants returned to the country after being expelled from Pakistan on Tuesday.

It should be noted that the newly returned migrants from this country returned via the Spin Boldak border in Kandahar province and the Torghundi border in Nangarhar province.

This comes as Iran and Pakistan have recently been deporting individuals without legal documents from their countries.

Amid a severe winter and a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, many returning Afghans face an uncertain future with no jobs, inadequate shelter, food, water, or medical care.
