Media outlets under the control of the Taliban have reported the arrest of members of a “significant” ISIS group in Herat, claiming that those detained were involved in the attack on worshippers in the Guzara district of this province in April.

Al-Marsad, a website affiliated with the Taliban, reported on Sunday, June 2nd, that, according to its sources, several “important” ISIS members were arrested in Herat during operations by the Special Forces of the Taliban over the past few days.

According to this media report, the arrested ISIS members were involved in all operations carried out by ISIS in Herat.

Al-Marsad, citing unnamed sources, reported that this ISIS network in Herat was directed by the operational branch of ISIS in Balochistan, Pakistan and that some recently arrested members had traveled to Balochistan.

The media outlet also claimed that after being suppressed in Afghanistan, the leadership of ISIS-Khorasan moved its command center to Balochistan, Pakistan, from where it directs its networks inside Afghanistan and other regional countries.

It is noteworthy that Mr. Farahi, the deputy governor in Herat, also announced yesterday that members of a “significant” ISIS group in the province had been arrested.

Mr. Farahi claimed in a post on social media platform X that the detainees were involved in the April 30 attack on the Imam Zaman Mosque in the Mohammadia township of Guzara district, Herat.
