From TTP to ISIS: The new game plan against Pakistan

1396/10/19 | 10:19
  Footprint of the militant Islamic State (IS) group is continuously on the rise in the country, especially in northern Sindh and Balochistan, as over the past one year responsibility for as many as six deadliest attacks, in which 153 people were killed, was claimed by this outfit.   This has been claimed in a report, ‘Pakistan Security Report 2017’, released by a think-tank, Pakistan Institute for Peace Studies (PIPS), on Sunday.   The organisation compiled its findings on the basis of its multi-source database, coupled ...

Scourge of sectarianism: The rise of terrorist activities against Shias in Pakistan and Afghanistan

1396/10/12 | 10:19
  The recent attack by the militant Islamic State (IS) group on a Shia cultural centre and news agency in Kabul is a reminder of one of the greatest challenges for the region over the coming year and beyond: sectarianism.    The attack highlights the resurgence in sectarian conflict in Afghanistan (while the Afghan Taliban may engage in sectarian violence, primarily against Hazaras, it does not persecute Shias as a defining policy).     Pakistan has already endured so much sectarian conflict that it is largely resigned ...

US Touts Escalation, but ISIS in Afghanistan Far From Defeated

1396/10/6 | 10:19
US officials bragged of 1,400 distinct operations against ISIS in Afghanistan, killing 1,600 of them, and insist there is no sign they are recruiting any new fighters.   The Afghan government has claimed on at least three separate occasions that ISIS in Nangarhar Province has been totally wiped out. Which is leading to a lot o questions at year’s end, as despite all these glowing reports, ISIS appears no closer to defeat in the region than ever, nor are all these deaths apparently reducing their ability to fight. Some of this has been ...

Facts about rise of ISIS in Afghanistan

1396/9/26 | 10:19
It is crystal clear the main aim of the supporters of these groups, namely the US and Saudi Arabia, was to make up for their losses in the Levant region.   In 2014, when ISIS takfiri-terrorist group was rising and gaining ground in some West Asian countries such as Syria and Iraq, militants who later founded its affiliates in the Afghan territories were moving from Pakistan’s northern borders into eastern and southeastern Afghanistan.  Not long after this border movement a takfiri group, calling itself ISIS of Afghanistan, announced ...

Why is Russia withdrawing from Syria?

1396/9/26 | 10:19
  I order the Defense Ministry and the chief of the General Staff to begin the pullout of the Russian military group from the Syrian Arab Republic to permanent locations.   After the announcement of the defeat of ISIS terrorist group in Syria last month, the most important news about the crisis-hit country was perhaps the surprise visit of the Russian president Vladimir Putin to Syria and ordering a major part of his country’s forces to withdraw from the Syrian soil. Putin, furthermore, said that the mission that was given to the ...

ISIS terrorists obtained US, Saudi Arabia weapons

1396/9/25 | 10:19
  ISIS Takfiri terrorist group regularly received weapons supplied by the United States and Saudi Arabia, a new report reveals.   According to a study by arms-monitoring group Conflict Armament Research (CAR) published on Thursday, weapons supplied by the US and Saudi Arabia to militants in Syria often fell into the hands of ISIS, significantly enhancing the “quantity and quality” of the group’s armaments.   The number of weapons goes “far beyond those that would have been available through battle capture alone”, ...

Where will be ISIS in 2018? Iran says Afghanistan and Pakistan are next

1396/9/24 | 10:19
  A top Iranian official has said his country is bracing itself for Islamic State militant group (ISIS) attempts to establish itself in Central Asia following its military defeats across the Middle East.   Addressing Tehran’s Seminar on Terrorism, Extremism and Regional Security in West Asia, Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said Tuesday that, although ISIS no longer held any significant stretches of territory, it still possessed a significant stockpile of arms, meaning its threat persisted throughout the region and ...

Terrorist attacks will increase in the United States

1396/9/23 | 10:19
Doug Wicks, a terrorism expert, said in an interview with “Russia Today” television channel that with the collapse of ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the possibility of terrorist attacks increases in the United States.   In response to the network’s question, Wicks said: “We have received unconfirmed video clips and reports about the New York attack and I think it’s necessary to publish more information about the Manhattan explosion.”   We hope that the officials involved in the investigation of the incident publish more information ...

India’s dangerous game plan:  Labeling Kashmir uprising as ISIS terrorism

1396/9/19 | 10:19
Former foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri told India here on Friday to not confuse an ongoing anti-Delhi uprising in the Kashmir Valley with any activities of the militant Islamic State group.   “It may be dangerous to paint the current uprising of the Kashmiri people as inspired by ‘Islamist terrorism’,” Mr Kasuri said during a discussion on India-Pakistan ties, his second in two days in Delhi.     It is pertinent to mention that Statements of certain extremist elements were prominently displayed and IS flags ...

ISIS Dream of a Caliphate Is Over

1396/9/18 | 10:19
The main border crossing between Iraq and Syria, the city of Albu Kamal on the Syrian side and al-Qaim on the Iraqi side, is the last major territorial possession of ISIS or ISIL and its medieval caliphate.   It is also the next big target for both Syria and Iraq’s militaries and their Iranian-Russian allies.     Per usual, ISIL is desperately building up its defenses around the area, pushing more forces into the area while, according to Iraqi officials, ISIL leaders are being evacuated to smaller towns inside Syria that ...

1396/9/14 | 10:19
  The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency has expressed concern about the threat posed by their wives and children of ISIS terrorists returning to the country from Syria and Iraq.   “There are children who have been brainwashed and highly radicalized at ‘schools’ in ISIS-held areas. It’s a problem for us because many of these kids and teenagers can sometimes be dangerous,” Hans-Georg Maassen warned Sunday in an interview with the Deutsche Presse Agentur (dpa) news agency, as cited by Süddeutsche Zeitung.   Massen ...

ISIS Makes Gains in North Afghanistan on Taliban Defections

1396/9/12 | 10:19
  ISIS has held territory in the Jawzjam Province for months, and that appears to be continuing to grow with reports that top Taliban commanders in the province have defected to their side, allowing them to expand their hold across multiple districts.   Throughout the 16+ year US occupation, Jawzjan has been relatively stable, with only limited Taliban influxes that rarely amounted to more than skirmishes. The presence of ISIS, though well documented, had mostly flown under the radar too, with ISIS elsewhere in the country considered ...

ISIS Targeting US children as revenge for Syrian air strikes

1396/9/10 | 10:19
  A group affiliated with the Islamic State is calling on lone wolves in America and Europe to attack Western children in retaliation for the death of Muslim children during airstrikes in Syria, according to an intelligence group.   The message was posted in a pro-ISIS Telegram channel on Monday and spread across a variety of pro-ISIS chat groups.   “I wish that I could travel to Europe or America or Australia and, by Allah, burn their children with oil in place of their men and women,” read the message, which referenced ...

ISIS uses women to attract western recruits

1396/9/10 | 10:19
ISIS is using well-known action hero blockbusters like Die Hard and Wonder Woman as blueprints for videos that encourage Western recruits to join its ranks. The Chicago Project on Security and Threat, which analyzed more than 1400 videos made by the group between 2013 and 2016, concluded ISIS videos followed the same storytelling arc as action hero movies. “It’s the heroic screenplay journey, the same thing that’s in Wonder Woman, where you have someone who is learning his or her own powers through the course of their reluctant journey ...

ISIS takes Santa Claus hostage!

1396/9/8 | 10:19

Israel could be ‘temporary allies’ with Daesh against Iran

1396/9/8 | 10:19

1396/9/8 | 10:19
