Isis-K, or Isis of Afghanistan, is the Taliban’s blood enemy and even steeper in its interpretation of Islam.
Friday the night before Finnish time at the White House in Washington, the President of the United States Joe Biden vowed revenge on a terrorist organization called Isis-K.
The organization had reported two suicide bombings in Kabul that killed more than 70 civilians and 13 U.S. soldiers, according to Friday morning data.
“I have ordered my military commander to plan attacks against Isis-K leadership and targets,” Biden said at the press conference. “We respond by force… Where we look our best when we look our best.”
But what really is Isis-K?
In the very complex reality of Afghanistan, Isis-K is probably the most repulsive actor. In both its interpretation of Islam and its choice of means, Isis-K is even more extreme than the Taliban.
Although both the Taliban and Isis-K swear by the names of Islam, they are bloody enemies of each other. Taliban officials said after Thursday’s terrorist attack that the bombings would have killed more of its fighters than U.S. soldiers.
Isis-K: ta can also be called the Isis of Afghanistan. The organization was founded in January 2015.
Isis in Afghanistan carried out its first terrorist attack in April 2015 in the city of Jalalabad in front of a bank branch, says a US research center Cisac. The attack killed 33 civilians and injured more than a hundred.
Isis-K’s violence is blatant. Its terrorists have carried out attacks that are exceptionally shocking, even on Afghanistan’s steep yardstick.
On May 12, 2020, a group of armed men dressed in police uniforms arrived from the morning at the entrance to Dasht-e-Barch Hospital in western Kabul, an area inhabited by many Shiite hazaras.
They resolutely advanced to the maternity ward, where they launched the massacre. Isis-K terrorists shot patients in their beds. There were at least 24 deaths, most of them women who had given birth, some of whom died with their babies.
On May 8 last, a car bomb exploded in western Kabul and then immediately followed by two more bombs. The target of the terrorist attack was a girls’ school, also in the Dasht-e-Barch area.
At least 90 people died in the school strike. Most of the victims were schoolgirls under the age of 15. The explosions were so intense that some of the girls disappeared into non-existence.
Afghanistan Isis was, at least initially, subordinate to its role model, Isis, a terrorist organization operating in Syria and Iraq.
Isis means “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria”. There has also been talk of the “Islamic State of Levant and Iraq”.
Isis-K is reportedly joined by some Taliban fighters who think the Taliban is not steep enough.
Like Isis in Syria and Iraq, Isis in Afghanistan has circulated videos of his terrorist acts. In one case, Isis-K forced rural village elders and other civilians to sit on a hill on top of explosive charges. The explosions were filmed, according to a US newspaper The Wall Street Journal.
Isis-K: n the letter K in the abbreviation comes from the historic province of Khorasan.
The reference to Khorasan is vague because the area can be defined in many different ways. Finnish researcher Andrei Sergejeffin from the book History of Afghanistan it turns out that Khorasan was a concept as early as the early days of Islam in the 6th century.
Isis-K may have taken its name Khorasan from the easternmost province of the so-called Greater Iranian region, which was ruled by Iranian dynasties in the 16th and 18th centuries and once extended far across Afghanistan to Central Asia.
The idea of founding Isis in Afghanistan must have been that the new Khorasan would become the so-called caliphate of Isis province.
Afghanistan Isisi intervals The Isis, headquartered in Raqqa, Syria, were American CSIS Research Institute according to close and warm.
When the terrorist regime of Raqqa had collapsed and the founder of Isis Abu Bakr al-Baghdadin dead in a U.S. attack in October 2019, the people fighting in Syria moved into the ranks of Isis-K.
The UN Security Council is assessing in July in its report that Isis-K has 500 to a few thousand members.
