Khaama: Dr. Mahmut Cengiz, an assistant professor at George Mason University in an analytical report claims that ISIS is rapidly growing, and will take the lead in conducting terror attacks in Afghanistan. Dr. Changis believes that the Islamic Emirate has not been successful in establishing a strong government and the Daesh (ISIS) is trying to fill the vacuum.

With the return of the Taliban to power, ISIS expanded its domain to Kabul and has been behind many brutal attacks in 2022. Click here to read more (external link).
