Conflicts between Taliban powers and Iran line watches on Sunday have left somewhere around one dead on the Afghanistan side, an Afghan police official said.
“We have one killed and one injured; the reason for the conflict isn’t as yet clear,” the police representative of the southern Afghan region of Nimroze, Bahram Haqmal, told Reuters.
Maysam Barazandeh, the legislative leader of the Iranian line area of Hirmand, was cited by the semi-official news organization Fars as saying the conflicts had halted and there were no losses.
Iran’s Tasnim news organization said conflicts broke out after Taliban powers attempted to raise their banner “in a space which isn’t An afghan area”.
Neighborhood sources let Reuters know that individuals residing close to the line on the Afghan side escaped their homes to hide when the conflicts strengthened.
Since assuming control over Afghanistan a year prior, Taliban powers have habitually conflicted with security powers of Iran, which neighbors the country toward the west, as well as Pakistan, which neighbors it toward the east.
