Who is ISIS-K, the terrorist who bombed the Kabul airport?

The terrorist organization ISIS-K behind the deadly bombing at Kabul airport is an affiliate

loyal to the so-called Islamic State (IS).

According to The Conversation on August 27, the terrorist organization ISIS-K claimed

responsibility for the suicide bombing at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul

(Afghanistan) on the afternoon of August 26.

A bomb attack on a crowd outside the airport killed at least 13 US soldiers and 60 civilians,

in addition to 18 wounded, as the US and other countries evacuated people from Afghanistan

after the Taliban took control of the country.

Before the attack, countries such as the US, UK, Australia and even the Taliban had warned

about the increased risk of attacks at this airport. U.S. officials are concerned specifically

that ISIS-K in Afghanistan is loyal to the Islamic State (IS) group.

ISIS-K centipede

A few months after IS declared a self-declared state in Iraq and Syria in 2014, fighters that

split from the Taliban formed their own group, ISIS-K, in Afghanistan and swore allegiance

to IS leader Abu. Bakr al-Baghdadi.

A year later, the organization was recognized by the IS leadership as it began to take root

in northeastern Afghanistan, namely the provinces of Kunar, Nangarhar and Nuristan.

According to UN observers, ISIS-K has also established underground facilities in parts of

Pakistan and Afghanistan, including Kabul.

According to a report by the United Nations Security Council, it is estimated that the

organization has between 500 and several thousand fighters.

ISIS-K is an acronym for the Islamic State organization in the Khorasan region, the former

name for the vast area that encompasses present-day Pakistan, Iran , Afghanistan and Central Asia.

Bloody terrorist attacks

ISIS-K is behind many of the deadliest attacks in recent years, targeting civilians in both

Afghanistan and Pakistan, at mosques, squares and even hospitals. This group specifically

targets Shia Muslims.

In May, ISIS-K attacked an all-girls school in Kabul and killed at least 68 people and

wounded more than 160, most of them female students.

By June, at least 10 people were killed and 16 others injured in an attack on the UK and

US mine clearance charity HALO Trust. ISIS-K later claimed responsibility.

The organization does not control a single territory and is often heavily damaged by operations by the Taliban and the US military.

According to the assessment of the United Nations and the US military, ISIS-K is currently

mainly based in underground facilities in or near cities for terrorist attacks.

Ronaldo Asks Man Utd board to Replace Solskjaer with Zidane

According to El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo has advised Manchester United’s board to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.

Following a 4-2 loss to Leicester City on Saturday, Solskjaer has been under greater scrutiny.

The Red Devils have lost three matches in the Premier League.

United’s leadership is said to have given Solskjaer their full support, believing the 48-year-old would enhance the team’s performance.

Senior officials at Old Trafford, on the other hand, are weighing their alternatives and have identified him as a viable contender, based on Ronaldo’s proposal.

According to the report, Zidane has met with United’s management, but he is interested in succeeding Didier Deschamps as France’s new head coach.

It’s also been reported that Zidane was approached by both PSG and Newcastle United, but the former Real Madrid manager declined both offers.
