Smuggling of 80,000 Farm Animals to Iran Prevented: Officials

Nimroz local officials said they have prevented the smuggling of 80,000 farm animals to Iran in the past six months.

According to the officials, the number of smuggled livestock has increased as Eid al-Adha approaches, with more than one thousand animals being smuggled to Iran daily.

Mohammad Dawood Ishaq, commander of the Fifth Border Battalion, said: "We have prevented the smuggling of between 70,000 to 80,000 farm animals."

Habibullah Elham, head of Information and Culture of Nimroz, said: "The smuggling of animals, in any form, is prohibited from the country. Therefore, based on the recommendations and guidelines of the provincial leadership of Nimroz, thousands of livestock have been prevented from being smuggled out of the country."

Nimroz residents say that along with the increase in livestock smuggling to Iran, the price of meat has also risen in this province.

Akhtar Mohammad, a resident of Nimroz, said: "Livestock are being sold at higher prices in Iran, which causes significant losses to the nation."

Ghulam Sakhi, head of the Nimroz Butchers' Union, said: "Animals are being smuggled to Iran, which is why they are scarce. There are few animals in Nimroz."

According to officials, previously about 300 farm animals were being smuggled to Iran daily, but as Eid al-Adha approaches, this number has increased to up to one thousand per day.
