Terrorist threats deminished from Afghanistan, says U.S. intelligence assessment

KABUL: Quoting two U.S. intelligence officials, CNN reported that Al-Qaeda revival in Afghanistan and Pakistan is unlikely based on recent intelligence assessments. These two American officials added that based on this assessment, the Khorasan branch of the Islamic State (ISIS) has been exerting increasing pressure, and many key group leaders have fled Afghanistan in recent months. According to the report, the ISIS Khorasan branch has been under increasing pressure from the Taliban [Islamic Emirate], and many of its key leaders have fled Afghanistan in recent months, while the AlQaeda threat has reached its lowest point in decades. However, Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate, once again emphasizes that no terrorist group operates on Afghan soil. “We have formed a government that has ensured security, and there is no doubt about that. We invite everyone to accept that Afghanistan is secure and poses no threat or trouble to anyone,” Mujahid said. Some political observers call on the government to take necessary actions against terrorist groups, especially the ISIS Khorasan branch, to assure the global community. “The strictness of the government against ISIS is currently noticeable, and the fact that a U.S. official expresses optimism is a positive step,” said Asadullah Nadim, a military expert. President Joe Biden of the United States had also previously stated that his predictions about the absence of AlQaeda in Afghanistan with the cooperation of the Islamic Emirate were correct.
