Afghan-Iranian border clash is misunderstanding: Taliban spokesman

Kabul: A fight between Iranian and Afghan border forces was verified by Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, who described the incident as a "misunderstanding." According to accounts in the media, a conflict between the two countries' military occurred at a border crossing between Iran and Afghanistan's western Nimroz region.

According to sources, Mujahid tweeted on Wednesday, "The clash in the border area of Kang district in Nimroz province between Afghan and Iranian border forces was a misunderstanding at local level and has been resolved." "The Islamic Emirate's leadership has issued necessary directions to prevent such tragedies in the future," Mujahid stated.

The Taliban, according to Iranian media, started the fight by opening fire on an Iranian checkpoint earlier Wednesday due to a misunderstanding about the border demarcation. According to reports, "the skirmishes have ceased, and Iran is discussing the situation with the Taliban." Smugglers employ active irregular crossings on the Afghanistan-Iran border for international human and drug trafficking, which is a cause of bilateral tensions.
