The Taliban group reacted to Iran border guards’ move for allegedly throwing 57 Afghan migrants into river, killing at least 23 of them.

The Taliban group in a statement said the group will share its deep concerns regarding the ‘martyrdom’ of the Afghan migrants, with the Iranian authorities.

The statement further added that the Iranian authorities must consider kindness, Islamic brotherhood and the principles of neighborhood in their behavior with the Afghans considering the ongoing situation in Afghanistan.

This comes as some of the Afghan migrants accused the Iranian forces, border guards, of throwing 57 people into a river which resulted in the killing of at least 23 of them, it has been reported.

Certain of the survivors of the incident have claimed that the Iranian border guards initially arrested the migrants from a bordering region and later threw them in to Harirod River.

According to reports, the incident took place earlier last week as the migrants were on their way to Iran, apparently for work opportunities.
