The Daesh group’s activities in Afghanistan have been reduced, and the organization is being dismantled, said Zabihullah Mujahid, a senior spokesperson of the interim government.

In an interview with state-run TV RTA, Mujahid stressed that some countries are attempting to exaggerate and take advantage of the false propaganda about Daesh’s threats in Afghanistan.

“Some countries accuse Daesh of their activities or claim Daesh has increased activity and is a threat to the world after six months; we deny this propaganda,” stated Mujahid.

He added that these countries want to exaggerate the Daesh phenomenon and its danger of exploiting their existence either against the country’s people or against the regime.

Earlier, he said to Voice of America, Pashto, since August 2021, the Taliban forces have arrested and imprisoned 1,600 to 1,700 Daesh militants and killed more than 1,100 fighters.

But in a recent speech to Congress, Michael Kurilla, the head of the US Central Command, asserted that ISIS is now more powerful than it was in Afghanistan.

Kurilla said “at least hundreds of thousands” of US people could be at risk from an attack by ISIS, which has the “ultimate goal of striking on the US homeland.”

According to the US general, at least 6,500 Daesh fighters are present in Afghanistan, with 4,000 stationed close to the Tajikistan border.
