Hundreds of people are protesting against Pakistan-Iran border closure, begin long march

| @indiablooms | 28 May 2024, 07:13 pm

Hundreds of people are participating in a protest march to demonstrate against the closure of a crossing point between Pakistan and Iran in Mashkel area of Rakhshan division in Balochistan.

The protesters, including traders, had been staging a sit-in for the last one month in the border town Mashkel demanding the opening of Pak-Iran Maza Sar border crossing used by local people for buying food items and other essential commodities, reported Dawn News.

The closure has led to a shortage of food and other daily commodities in the region.

Local traders said the closure has also impacted their border trade.

The participants of the long march expressed their gratitude to the people of Yakmach and were quoted as saying by Dawn News, “We are gra­t­eful to the people of Yakmach for their humanitarian gesture and for standing with us during this difficult time.”

The people of Yakmach have expressed full support to the demonstrators.
