The resurgence of ISIS poses a threat to stability in Afghanistan

The resurgence of ISIS in Afghanistan has led to a significant increase in terrorist activities, creating a substantial challenge for the Afghan Taliban government. Despite claims from Taliban leaders about their efforts to control ISIS, recent reports from the Afghan Hasht e Subh Daily reveal a concerning situation.

Following the Taliban’s takeover, hundreds of ISIS fighters were released from prisons and have since resumed their violent campaigns across Afghanistan. Taliban sources admit their failure to halt ISIS operations, with the terrorist organization being notably active in several provinces, especially Kunar and Nangarhar.

He stressed the urgent need for the Taliban to honor their commitments to combat terrorism and prevent Afghanistan from becoming a haven for extremist elements.
