Terrorist attacks in Afghanistan continue even after the Taliban take power.

On Tuesday, many students in a Shiite Hazara neighborhood in Kabul were killed in an attack.

There is much to suggest that the "Islamic State of Khorasan" committed the bloody deed.

Several attacks against the Shiites, demonized as "infidels", can be attributed to him.

IS fights the Taliban as "apostats"

The IS Khorasan, which is considered the strongest IS offshoot in the world, is also fighting the Taliban.

Because unlike the IS, which worships a transnational jihad, the Taliban have committed themselves to a strongly Islamic-tinged nationalism that is based on the tribal traditions of the country.

For this reason alone, the IS declares the Taliban to be its main enemy and fights them as "apostats".

With its terrorist attacks, IS wants to give the Afghan population the impression that, unlike in 1996, the Taliban will not be able to restore security and order in the country this time.

That had earned the Taliban the support of many Afghans at the time.

With its terror, IS today wants to undermine trust in the rule of the Taliban and bring itself into play as the ruler.

The fewer resources the Taliban have to fight IS, the more it can expand its terror.

Sooner or later, IS would also seek its targets in Europe.
