The Taliban is sending 1,300 fighters to eastern Afghanistan to fight Islamic State

“The fight is tough, and yes sometimes it is brutal, but we have to exterminate Daesh not only for Afghanistan but for the whole world,” said Qari Nurullah Fateh, a Taliban fighter during the group’s intelligence wing in Jalalabad. Daesh is the Arabic acronym for Islamic State commonly used in Afghanistan. “If anyone does not surrender to us, we will kill them.”
