  • AFGHANISTAN: Daesh’s Afghanistan wing – the Islamic State Khorasan Province (ISKP) – and al-Qaeda have been making efforts to establish a caliphate in Afghanistan’s northeastern Badakhshan, a strategic province as it borders Pakistan, China and Tajikistan. Since its inception in 2014-15, the ISKP has been expanding in size and been receiving a direct influx of fighters and patronage from Syria. Additionally, many Afghan Taliban who opposed the idea of negotiations with the United States have also joined ISKP.
