Nearly 3,000 Afghan migrants deported from Pakistan and Iran


The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation has reported the forced deportation of nearly 3,000 Afghan refugees from Pakistan and Iran.

In a statement released on Tuesday, May 28, the ministry stated that 622 Afghan refugees were deported from Pakistan, and 2,859 refugees were deported from Iran.

According to the statement, these refugees returned to the country through the Spin Boldak border, the Torkham border in Nangarhar province, and the Islam Qala border.

This comes amid a dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, exacerbated by the recently forced deportation of Afghan refugees from neighboring countries and natural disasters.

The forced deportation of Afghan refugees from Pakistan has worsened the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. Thousands of refugees are being sent back to a country already struggling with severe economic and social challenges.

The recent deadly floods in various provinces have added to the woes of the Afghan population. These floods have caused extensive damage to infrastructure, homes, and agricultural lands, further increasing the demand for urgent humanitarian assistance.

With the expulsion of refugees and the impact of natural disasters, the need for humanitarian aid in Afghanistan has reached unprecedented levels. The international community is urged to provide immediate assistance to address the escalating crisis and support the affected populations.
