Iranian border guards, Taliban forces reportedly clash:


Iranian border guards clashed with the Afghan Taliban, Iranian media reported, the latest cross-border exchange since the Taliban seized power in neighborin­g Afghanista­n a year ago. Iran’s semioffici­al Tasnim news agency quoted Iran’s deputy interior minister as saying that the Taliban forces first opened fire on Iranian guards, forcing them to return fire until the exchange subsided about an hour and a half later. Clashes have repeatedly erupted between Iranian security forces and Afghan Taliban forces along the border since the Taliban takeover in Afghanista­n in August 2021.
