There were video clips on social media, which showed that the Taliban were moving towards the Iranian border with a military convoy consisting of battle tanks and armoured vehicles. The Taliban wanted to react to Iran’s threats with this move.
Reports indicated that there were clashes between the border guards of the Taliban and the Islamic Republic of Iran the Saturday before. These clashes are caused by the unresolved issue of water quota. The Taliban has said that they will not surrender to Iran’s demands.
Iran had previously warned the Taliban about their water quota. According to the published reports, Iranian government officials have told the Taliban that they will be given a month to solve the water quota problem.
