Over half a million Afghan refugees returned home

Over 500,200 Afghans left Pakistan between Sept
15, 2023, and Jan 13, 2024, the statement said.

KABUL: Over 500,000 Afghans have returned to Afghanistan since November last year after Pakistan announced the deportation of undocumented migrants from its soil, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) said in a statement the other day. Over 500,200 Afghans left Pakistan between Sept 15, 2023, and Jan 13, 2024, the statement said. “Since the initial peak around November 1, the number of individuals crossing these official border points has consistently decreased but remains higher than pre-September 15th,” the statement said. Meanwhile, the busiest border crossing between the two countries remained closed for the tenth day running in a dispute over document rules for commercial drivers. The row centers on demands for drivers from both sides to have visas and passport documents many Afghans do not have as Pakistan cracks down on cross-border movements. Millions of Afghans fleeing conflict have poured into Pakistan over the past four decades conflicts and instability in Afghanistan. The Kabul Times
