As the UN warned of a humanitarian catastrophe for Afghanistan, the British Daily Mail published iconic images of thousands of Afghans trying to flee across their land borders to Pakistan or Iran.
FIRST TARGET IRAN
In images reminiscent of a movie scene, there were times when Afghan immigrants crossing the desert region on the Pakistani border attempted to enter Iran. For Afghan immigrants in the deserts of Pakistan, including the elderly, pregnant women and babies, the British Daily Mail has used the analogy of “Exodus”, which means “out of Egypt”, in the Torah and the Bible.
The journey begins in Nimruz, Afghanistan’s least populated desert region, and sees nothing but a community of migrants on the empty land. Afghan immigrants march nonstop in order to cover the road quickly.

THE POOREST WALK
Speaking to the Daily Mail, an Afghan migrant said that after a 4-hour walk, they crossed Pakistan and reached a deserted valley at 10 p.m., where they began to wait for Iranian smugglers. Here, too, he said that people were asked for a password. He then noted that everyone was divided into small groups and continued with Iranian smugglers at their head. The same person said, “Those who walk here are the poorest. Because there are also roads with less walking but more expensive.
FINAL TARGET EUROPE
In the news, it has been clarified that the ultimate goal of Afghan immigrants is to travel to Europe and England via Turkey, and that there are still 1,600 kilometers ahead of them. An eyewitness speaking to the UK news site said: “I have been through here several times. There were about 200 people, this time there are thousands. I have seen pregnant women, babies, old people, ”he said. It was also claimed that Iran was less strict at the crossing points than before.

‘THERE ARE OTHER COUNTRIES WHERE AFGANS CAN STAY OUTSIDE TURKEY’
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has said they will accept as few Afghan asylum seekers as possible, except those who work for them. Stating that people fleeing Afghanistan should be accommodated in countries in the region, Rutte said: “Turkey is already hosting millions of Syrians. “There are other countries in the region where Afghans can stay,” he said.
According to BBC Turkish, Rutte singled out other countries in the region, particularly Pakistan, over the Afghan refugees. The Dutch Prime Minister, who is in contact with the objective of preventing a possible influx of Afghan refugees to the West, met French President Emmanuel Macron the previous evening. Mark Rutte, stressing that the last thing the countries of the European Union (EU) want is a new crisis, said: “Everyone is trying to prevent it.
