In the ongoing trend of repatriation, figures released by the Taliban-run Ministry of Refugees reveal that 2,123 migrants returned to Afghanistan on Monday, December 4, marking a slight increase from the numbers recorded the previous day.

According to the ministry, these migrants were either deported or returned voluntarily, entering the country through the Islam Qala border town in Herat.

On December 3, figures indicate that 1,860 Afghan migrants returned through the same border town of Islam Qala in Herat.

This steady influx of returning Afghan immigrants follows a pattern observed over the past week, with a daily average of at least 2,000 Afghan migrants returning from Iran to Afghanistan. The movement suggests ongoing shifts in migration dynamics between the two countries.
