The terrorist group “Islamic State” in Afghanistan is defeated. This statement was made by the Acting Minister of the Interior Masoud Andrabi.
According to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the country, extremists were defeated, members of small cells surrender to security forces, and those who try to move to other parts of the country are neutralized by the security forces.
Local residents, according to Andrabi, support the security forces and will not allow any foreign terrorist network to gain a foothold in the country.
This good news from Afghanistan is, in a way, a solution to another problem that some countries like to speculate on. We are talking about the threat of IS to the Central Asian states from the territory of Afghanistan.
There are reports in the media with enviable consistency that ISIS militants, defeated in the Middle East, are being transferred to Afghan territory and may at any time attack the states neighboring Afghanistan.
First, the Central Asian states were scared by the Mujahideen, who had fought with the Soviet troops. Then the Taliban, who, having defeated the Mujahideen, established their power in Kabul. And in recent years, the IG group. At the same time, neither the Mujahideen, nor the Taliban, nor the IS militants went to war in Central Asia. Be that as it may, the successful struggle of the Afghan security forces with the IS group suggests that there is less evil on Afghan soil. And this strengthens the overall stability in the Central Asian region.
