The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations reported the forced expulsion of nearly a thousand Afghan migrants from Pakistan.

Today, on Thursday, May 30, the ministry announced that 979 Afghan migrants returned after being expelled from Pakistan.

According to the ministry, the deportees returned on May 29 via the Spin Boldak border and the Torghundi border.

Based on information from the Torghundi border customs office in Nangarhar province, 115 families, comprising 647 individuals, entered the country through this checkpoint.

Additionally, 62 families, consisting of 332 individuals, continue to enter the country through the Spin Boldak crossing.

Afghan migrants are being expelled from Pakistan and Iran amidst recent devastating floods that caused significant damage in various provinces of the country.

The dire situation exacerbated by the recent floods has increased the need for humanitarian aid in Afghanistan.
