Kyrgyzstan authorities announced on Friday that they had arrested 15 people on charges of supporting ISIS.

The Kyrgyzstan State Security Agency said on June 14, “One of the leaders of this group was operating under the supervision of the Khorasan branch of ISIS in Afghanistan.”

The State Security Agency of Kyrgyzstan also stated that this radical group, which was secretly promoting ISIS ideology, was identified and arrested, and their activities were halted.

Previously, the Tajikistan government also expressed concern about the infiltration of extremist religious groups from the Afghan border into their country and conducted joint military exercises with Russian forces along the Afghan border.

Following a deadly attack on a concert hall in the suburbs of Moscow, for which ISIS claimed responsibility, Central Asian countries have become increasingly concerned about the subversive activities of this group.

The activities of the ISIS Khorasan branch in Afghanistan have caused significant concern for Central Asian countries bordering Afghanistan. These countries have placed the fight against ISIS and extremist Islamic groups at the forefront of their security agendas.

Although the majority of Kyrgyzstan’s population is Muslim, the government adheres to secular values and suppresses jihadist activities.

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, there has been an increase in ISIS attacks in the region. This escalation has raised concerns among regional and global powers about the potential spread of instability and terrorism.

The increased ISIS activity has led to heightened security measures and international cooperation to combat the threat. The situation underscores the complex security challenges in Afghanistan and its impact on regional stability.
