Taliban Attacks ISIS
By Micah Halpern
The Taliban attacked an ISIS group, killing some and arresting the others.
ISIS had perpetrated attacks against Uzbekistan and Tajikistan from Afghan soil, so, in response, the Taliban raided ISIS.
"Last night, special forces of the Islamic Emirate discovered and destroyed a center of Islamic State militiamen. During the operation, three of them were killed and five others were arrested," said Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid.
In a message disseminated through his Twitter account, Mujahid pointed out that ISIS "weapons and several vehicles" were seized. He wrote: "It was not so long ago that they launched several rockets against Uzbekistan and Tajikistan."
Why all this tension between the Taliban and ISIS? Here’s the explanation. ISIS attacked two countries from Taliban controlled Afghanistan. That made the Taliban look bad. This attack was to shut down the ISIS cell that perpetrated those attacks.
For the Taliban, the mission was a success.
