Taliban officials in Nimruz, a southwestern province in Afghanistan contiguous to Iran, said that a “misunderstanding” between Taliban forces and Iranian border guards along the border resulted in a skirmish.

The clash, according to the Taliban local officials, occurred on Monday, 11th June, in Nimruz province’s Kang district.

While denying “severe clashes” between the Taliban forces and the Iranian border guards, the Taliban’s Department of Information and Culture of Nimruz province stated that the clash is now over, eliminating concerns.

However, no casualty or injury is reported at this time.

At least three instances in the past month, the Taliban forces have engaged in armed confrontations with Iranian border guards.

A border skirmish at the Afghanistan-Iran border killed an Iranian border guard, Mohammad Sayadi, who is survived by his wife and daughter.

The Taliban forces were blamed by the media for another armed encounter with Iranian border guards, while Iranian media described the opposite side as “armed miscreants.”

Since taking over in mid-August of last year, the Taliban forces have frequently instigated violent armed skirmishes with the neighboring countries, particularly at the borders with Tajikistan, Iran, and Pakistan.
