Several Indians were also among the more than 1,400 IS state unit fighters who surrendered in Afghanistan in the past year. This was reported in the United Nations Sanctions Monitoring Team’s 25th Report on the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant Khorasan (ISIL-K), Al Qaeda and its related organizations.
It is well known that the United Nations Security Council’s 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee (1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee) last year blacklisted ISIL-K. The number of people from which country was not mentioned, but it has been said that there are about 2,500 terrorists of this organization i.e. ISIL Khorasan in Afghanistan.
Of these, 2,100 are active in Kunar province alone. Explain that ISIL-K is an active ISIL branch in Afghanistan as well as Pakistan. The report states that ISIL-K performs an online recruitment drive. The terrorist organization, in various parts of Afghanistan, including Kabul, conducts canteen propaganda campaigns in schools, universities, and madrasas.
The UN report also said that ISIL-K was severely damaged by Afghan security forces and Taliban supporters and evicted from a large area of the province of Nangarhar. The January 2020 report stated that more than 1,400 militants, including those dependent on ISIL-K militants, had surrendered to officials in Afghanistan, most of whom were Afghan nationals.
