Pictures obtained show thousands of Afghans fleeing the country through the desert. It is estimated that over 500,000 afghans could escape the war-torn country by a 1000-miles trek across Iran to Turkey.
According to a report by Mail Online, a migrant who made the same journey affirmed that the Afghans have to embark on a perilous journey across the rough terrain.
The migrant said that some of the migrants will have to continue their journey with Iranian human traffickers.
As reported by the BBC, a US ambassador said that the US is already overburdened by the refugees and that the country can't take more of the refugees.
Meanwhile, Uzbekistan has closed its borders in the North of Afghanistan against migrants for security purposes.
Uzbekistan, which borders the north of Afghanistan, has also said its main crossing point will remain closed to "ensure security".
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi has urged Afghanistan border countries to free their borders as an estimated 500,000 Afghans could flee the country.
Grandi said that the effort of some countries who airlifted some afghans are encouraging and have saved lots of life. He added that over 39 million afghans will remain in the country to face Taliban rule.
