Taliban Launches Operation Against ISIS-K After Deadly Mosque Attack

The Taliban leadership has unveiled a major operation to search and eliminate the presence of ISIS-Khorasan, after a bomb attack near a mosque in Kabul last week claiming lives. Taliban claim that they have conducted a decisive raid and caught a trio of terrorists behind the mosque attack, wiping out the ISIS-K cell. They force claim to have destroyed an Islamic State cell in the north of Kabul and have launched a search to destroy any footprints or presence of ISIS-K in the capital and other parts of the country.

ISIS-K has emerged as a major challenge for the Taliban as the group has claimed many deadly attacks in the past, most recent being at the Kabul airport, during the withdrawal of foreign troops, followed by last week's suicide blast outside the Eid Gah mosque, where prayers were being held for the deceased mother of Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid.

"A special unit carried out an operation against ISIS insurgents. As a result of the operation, which was very decisive and successful, the ISIS center was completely destroyed and all the ISIS members in it were killed", stated Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid.

But the emergence of ISIS-K and Daesh operatives from the capital constitute the daunting challenges that the Taliban government faces as a major resistance against their Islamic setup of governance in the country. As per reports, ISIS-K has opposed the Taliban leadership and the new government set up in Afghanistan, calling it against the teachings and requirements of a Shariah rule of law.
