Local residents of the Keng district said that the one-hour armed clashes erupted after Afghan people tried to dig a local channel called Sikhsar. People say that Iranian border guards opened fire in a bid to stop people digging the channel. The Iranian and Afghan forces have for a long time been at loggerhead over the channel.(20220307)
