Analysts believe that handing over responsibility for security in Kabul to Saleh and handing over responsibility for ISIS to his special guard and then escalating attacks on civilian installations in Kabul show a strong link between the previous government and ISIS.

Former Afghan National Army joins ISIS

The American newspaper Wall Street Journal has claimed in a report that after leaving America for Afghanistan, former Afghan soldiers and spies are now being recruited in ISIS due to their helplessness.

According to the report, some former members of the Afghan intelligence service and elite force personnel trained by the United States have now joined ISIS. The number of defecting veterans joining the terrorist group is relatively small but is steadily increasing.

The report further states that the new recruits to ISIS have significant expertise in intelligence gathering and combat techniques. These ex-servicemen could enhance the militant group’s ability to counter the Taliban’s supremacy.

In some areas, ISIS has become a lucrative organization for former members of the Afghan security and defense forces, said Rehmatullah Nabil, a former head of Afghanistan’s intelligence agency. Especially those soldiers who could not leave the country have joined the ranks of ISIS.

When did ISIS become Khorasan?

ISIL Khurasan has been active in Afghanistan and Pakistan for some time, and in the last few years it has carried out deadly attacks in both countries. Mosques, shrines, public places and even hospitals were not spared during their operations.

The terrorist organization ISIS Khurasan was tarnished in Kunar, Afghanistan in 2014, shortly before the establishment of the Khilafah by the central organization in Syria. This branch of ISIS was named Islamic State of Khorasan after the ancient region of Khorasan based on Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and Central Asian countries.

Experts on the subject of terrorism and extremism believe that the key role in founding ISIS Khurasan was played by the Pakistani Taliban who fled to Afghanistan to escape the Pakistan Army.

The group initially limited itself to the border areas but later succeeded in consolidating its roots in northeastern Afghanistan, especially in the provinces of Kunar, Nangarhar and Nuristan.

According to a recent UN report, ISIL Khurasan has 500 core members, while the extremists working for it could be in the thousands.
