Iran to accommodate Afghan refugees temporarily

Iran is to provide temporary accommodation for Afghan refugees in its three eastern provinces of Khorassan Razavi, South Khorassan and Sistan and Baluchestan, said a senior official at Interior Ministry on Sunday.

Director-General of Border Affairs at Iran’s Interior Ministry Hossein Qassemi said given the recent developments in Afghanistan, Iran is expected to face with a large number of Afghans fleeing Taliban at border areas.

Temporary accommodation has been prepared in the three Iranian provinces, Qassemi said stressing that anti-coronavirus protocols are being observed in the said areas, Mehr News Agency reported.

According to latest reports, Taliban have reached Kabul.

Reports coming from the Afghanistan’s capital city indicated that residents of Kabul stormed a bank to withdraw their money on Sunday.

The Afghan people are seeking to leave the country by attending the consular section of the Iranian Embassy in Kabul.

Taliban's advance in various parts of Afghanistan and taking control of 27 provinces have put the group on the verge of complete domination of all parts of the country, iranpress.come reported.

Reports from various parts of Afghanistan show that government forces have surrendered with the least resistance in most provinces, and the Taliban have had no difficulty gaining control of the cities.

Meanwhile, the Taliban group continued its advance on Sunday in the town of Nili, the capital of Nili district in Daikundi in central Afghanistan.
