Published

on

The ISIS vs Taliban Rivalry has become the new face of violence in Afghanistan. In the ISIS  vs Taliban clashes are fiercely going on in the eastern province of Afghanistan and hundreds of civilians have been displaced. This was reported by the Afghan officials. The displaced families have been forced to seek refuge in other parts of Afghanistan.

Over the last 10 months, the ISIS vs Taliban clashes in Afghanistan have displaced more than 400 families. The clashes between Taliban and ISIS have been relentless in eastern Afghanistan. The impact of these clashes has been the most in Nangarhar which is known to be a traditional stronghold of the ISIS.

What is the ISIS vs Taliban Rivalry about?

Both these militant outfits are contesting for power and superiority. They are fighting to claim credit for the violence that has seen a massive surge in Afghanistan in the past few months. Despite both of them being insurgent militant groups, they hold different agendas and this rivalry can be seen as a war of agendas. In the past, there has been a massive hike in suicide bombings and light combats in Afghanistan for which both of them are responsible.

Some experts differentiate between them as ‘Nationalist Islamists’ and ‘International Islamists.’ While the Taliban is termed as being a nationalist Islamist outfit, ISIS is an international rogue force.

Haqqani vs Taliban in Afghanistan

Terror in Afghanistan is not just restricted to clashes between Taliban and ISIS. Haqqani network has been responsible for a larger chunk of lethal attacks on Kabul. The Haqqani network is said to have strong ties with the ISI, the intelligence agency of Pakistan.
The ISIS recently claimed the onus for the very recent suicide attack in Jalalabad. The unfortunate attack left as much as 19 people dead most of which were Sikhs and Hindus. One of the Sikhs among the deceased, Avtar Singh Khalsa was about the contest the elections in October. The Islamic State has owned up to the responsibility for the attacks.
