According to the Washington Post, as the weather warms, ISIS and the National Resistance Front will intensify their attacks against the Taliban as they “seek to consolidate their control” over Afghanistan.
According to the report, ISIS and “guerrilla attacks by former Afghan government security personnel,” have been the major threats to the Taliban. Citing the Taliban’s tight ties to the fanatical al-Qaeda organisation, the report furhter states that al-Qaeda could not carry out international attacks and operations by 2023, “with or without the Taliban support.”
UN experts maintain that the Taliban have recruited at least 41 wanted international offenders who are on the organization’s blacklist, to hold significant positions.
The Taliban, on the other hand, are concerned about power, according to the UN, not mindful of solving Afghanistan’s problems.
According to the Washington Post, the Taliban, since their inception has been divided between “extremist” and “reformist” factions based on the beliefs that govern and shape their behavior.
The Taliban, according to Rina Amiri, the US special envoy for Afghan women, could not agree on whether women should study because they are divided.
