Iran’s customs office IRICA has urged businesses not to send export shipments to two main border crossings with Afghanistan after reports showed that Taliban insurgents had occupied facilities on the other side of the border.

Trade has been halted through Dogharoun and Mahirood border crossings located along Iran’s eastern border with Afghanistan since Thursday.

Closures were imposed after Taliban forces stormed customs offices on the opposite side of the border affecting the Afghan customs offices in Islam Qala and in Sheikh Abu Nasr Farahi crossings.

Trade between Iran and Afghanistan is flowing normally through a third major border crossing in Milak in southeastern Iran.

The Taliban has launched an all-out offensive since earlier this month to take control of many urban and rural districts across Afghanistan.

That has come after international forces led by the United States announced that they were withdrawing from Afghanistan some 20 years after they occupied the country to depose a Taliban government.
