Afghans migrants are forcefully stuck in limbo with serious risks to their life in Iran because of negligence under the Islamic Republic of Iran as well as a systematic prohibition on education, lack of issued identification, forbidden to enter pools and amusement parks. They don't have rights to buy property; the Afghan migrants also can't be hospitalized in some metropolitan areas and are not allowed to own cards or get a driving license. Human Rights Watch says the Islamic Republic of Iran has forcibly sent thousands of Afghan refugees to support and reinforce the Syrian regime in its civil war. In addition, Ms. Fatemeh Ashrafi, chairperson of the Association of Refugees stated that only 10% of Afghan refugees' children have the right to educational services.
