The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations of the Taliban administration reported the deportation of nearly three thousand Afghan migrants from Pakistan and Iran.

The ministry announced in a press release on Thursday, June 6, that 805 migrants were deported from Pakistan and 1,640 from Iran.

According to the press release, the returnees entered the country on June 5.

The press release stated that the deported migrants entered Afghanistan through the Islam Qala, Torkham, and Spin Boldak borders.

Afghan migrants are being deported 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.

Forced deportations are taking place amid a dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, where many returnees face severe challenges in securing basic necessities such as food, shelter, and healthcare.

Additionally, the situation in Afghanistan has been exacerbated by deadly flooding, which has caused widespread damage, displaced thousands, and worsened the already critical living conditions for many people in the affected areas.

These floods have particularly affected the deported migrants, who are returning to a country struggling to cope with natural disasters on top of the existing economic and security issues, making their resettlement even more difficult.
