 ‘Daesh Trying To Regroup In Afghanistan’

Daesh and other groups are trying to regroup in Afghanistan, according to Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. “ISIS and other groups are trying to put themselves back together, they have not succeeded yet and they have not yet presented a threat to the U.S. homeland but we are watching that very, very, closely and if they raise their head and do present a threat, we will take appropriate (action),” he said at a Senate hearing, as reported by Tolo News. The Islamic Emirate denied the presence of Daesh and said Afghan soil will not be used against anyone. “We have eliminated a lot of their sanctuaries so far. The presence of Daesh is very small. They have conducted some attacks on a school and mosques but have not accomplished anything significant. We are serious about our security and will not allow anyone to cause insecurity,” said Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid.
