According to the Islamic Emirate, the Islamic State, also known as Daesh, has been severely curbed in Afghanistan.
The militants did not have a physical presence in Afghanistan, according to Suhail Shaheen, head of the IEA’s Political Office in Qatar.
He mocked a Washington Post article that claimed that international terrorists were once again finding refuge in Afghanistan.
“The report is not grounded on Afghanistan’s actual circumstances. Such reports are created based on the whims of the individual, Shaheen continued.
Earlier, The Washington Post stated that Daesh, which planned assaults throughout Europe and Asia, had established Afghanistan as a crucial coordinating hub.
The threat posed by Daesh was seen as an increasing security issue in the newspaper’s classified Pentagon assessment.
According to the assessment, nine plots directed by ISIS leaders in Afghanistan were known to Pentagon authorities in December of last year. The classified Pentagon report was rejected by IEA spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid as being a part of ongoing defamation of the interim Afghan government.
Mujahid said in a statement that the current administration will not permit anyone to utilize Afghan land for strikes against other nations. The IEA has enforced security across Afghanistan, he claimed. “Such reports show some people in America have not forgotten their enmity with the people of Afghanistan.”
