The Taliban’s unconvincing war on ISIS-K

Is the Taliban truly intent on vanquishing ISIS-K, or are its claims of tackling the terror group more form than substance to win international recognition and restore foreign aid flows?

Recent reports indicate the Taliban has deployed about 1,300 of fighters to the eastern Afghan province of Nangahar, where ISIS-K is known to maintain an operational hub and is historically most active.

Unlike other militant outfits in Afghanistan, ISIS-K has long been at ideological and motivational loggerheads with the Taliban, not least in its transnational agenda.
