KABUL, AFGHANISTAN: Afghanistan is emerging as a centre for terrorist groups after the Taliban took over the country following the withdrawal of the US military.
The leadership of the Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed, known for its attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, has shifted to Afghanistan's Helmand province, as per the officials.
The leadership of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks, is shifting to East Afghanistan.
Islamic State Khorasan, also known as IS-K or ISIS-K, has already carried out suicide bombings in Kabul to stop Afghan nationals from leaving the country. 169 Afghans and 13 American service members died in the attack.
ISIS-K first appeared in eastern Afghanistan in late 2014. They already have a reputation for brutality.
Following yesterday's suicide bombings, the US carried out a drone strike to take out terrorists.
An official told the media about their concerns about more cells being activated in central Asia and India as a result of this.
The attack against the American military yesterday is regarded as the deadliest terrorist attack against the country's forces since 2011.
