Iran welcomes more than 2000 Afghan refugees back home

According to the Taliban-run Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR), more than 2,000 Afghan refugees have returned to their homeland from Iran, according to Afghan news outlet Khaama Press.

According to the Taliban-run Ministry of migrants and Repatriation (MoRR), at least 534 Afghan migrants entered Afghanistan through Islam Qala in Western Herat province. In addition, it stated that at least 288 of the 2000 returnees had been connected with the International Office for Migration (IOM) in order to obtain the most fundamental assistance.
According to Khaama Press, there are many reasons why the number of Afghan refugees returning to Afghanistan from Iran has risen in recent months at a never-before-seen rate. According to a report by Khaama Press, the head of the Taliban’s refugee department for Nimruz Mawlavi Abdullah Reyaz had claimed that around 65,000 refugees had returned to Afghanistan via the Pul-e-Abresham crossing point in the previous month.

In the meantime, the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, which is run by the Taliban, reported that more than 527,000 Afghan refugees had returned to their country in 2022. It went on to say that Afghans either voluntarily fled Iran or were forced to. The UNHCR asserted that the persistent repatriation of Afghan refugees from nearby countries is directly tied to the escalating prices and a lack of employment opportunities in the host countries.

Earlier on May 5, according to a report by Afghanistan’s Khaama Press and the Taliban-run Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation, as many as 2,106 Afghan refugees returned to Afghanistan from Iran across the Islam Qala border in western Herat province.

The Refugee and Repatriation Ministry stated in a series of tweets that these migrants arrived back in Afghanistan on June 3, according to Khaama Press. Taliban representatives claim that at least 193 returnees were brought to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) for basic necessities.
