Details of the conflict between Iranian border forces and the Taliban
On the afternoon of December 1, 2021, a clash broke out between Iranian border guards and the Taliban over a border misunderstanding in the Shaghalak area, near Nimroz province.
The story is that in recent years, walls have been erected inside Iran and a few hundred meters from the border with Afghanistan to fight against smugglers and criminals; That day, some Iranian farmers crossed these walls but they all time have been within Iran’s borders, but because of these walls, the Taliban forces believe that their border has been violated.
Following this incident, the Taliban forces fired at the Iranians, to which the Iranian security forces responded.
In an interview with Tasnim, an informed official highlighted that the fringe news that the Taliban had seized Iran’s border controls was fundamentally false.
Thus, the news of the “objective of capturing the Iranian checkpoints” is denied.
