The dispute between the Taliban and Iran is mainly over the water rights of the Helmand River, which flows from Afghanistan to Iran and provides irrigation and drinking water for both countries.

The Taliban have been accused by Iran of violating a 1973 treaty that regulates the flow of water from the river to Iran’s drought-hit eastern regions. The Taliban have denied the accusation and said they respect Iran’s water rights.

The dispute has led to clashes on the border between the two countries, with heavy gunfire exchanged on Saturday, killing at least three people and injuring several others. The incident has raised fears of a new conflict in the region and undermined efforts to normalize relations between the Taliban and Iran.

The clash occurred on Saturday near the Kang district of Nimroz province in Afghanistan, where Iran has accused the Taliban of violating a 1973 treaty that regulates the flow of water from the river to Iran’s drought-hit eastern regions. The Taliban have denied the accusation and said they respect Iran’s water rights.
