International Rescue Committee Expresses Concerns over the Uncertain Future of Returnees from Pakistan

Bayan News – The International Rescue Committee (IRC) states that over half a million displaced Afghans returning from Pakistan are facing an uncertain future.

In a newsletter issued today, Saturday, February 10th, the organization has issued a warning that returnees from Pakistan are in dire need of humanitarian assistance and are facing food insecurity.

The IRC newsletter further highlights the plight of individuals at risk in Pakistan, particularly those seeking to go to the United States, who face numerous challenges.

In recent months, the Pakistani government has expelled thousands of migrants who were residing unlawfully in the country.

The expulsion of migrants, due to the lack of basic living conditions such as shelter and reduced humanitarian aid, has subjected them to multiple challenges.

Simultaneously, it has been reported that over 20,000 Afghan migrants have been expelled from Iran within a 15-day period.

According to ISNA news agency, Majid Shojai, the commander of Khorasan Razavi Border Guards in Iran, stated that the presence of these individuals in Iran was illegal.

The Iranian official stated that every foreign national should enter Iran through official and legal gateways; otherwise, a firm response will be taken against them.
