Afghanistan’s ISKP remains primarily a regional threat for now

October 5, 2023 | Oved Lobel

It may well be that my 2021 assessments on ISKP’s future will eventually turn out to be correct. Yet for now, just over two years since the US withdrawal, the Taliban crackdown is mostly keeping the group in check and there still seem to be enough intelligence sources in and around Afghanistan to disrupt any plots – if any concrete plots, as opposed to aspirations, even exist – directed at the West.

September 11, 2023 | Justin Amler

UNESCO is supposed to be a body that preserves the cultural history of the world.
