The US Government Says The New Head Of Isis Since June 2020 Is Sanaullah Ghafari, Also Known As Shehab Mohajer. Sanaullah Ghaffari Has The Authority To Approve All Operations And Also To Finance The Extremist Organization.
According to Afghan journalists, according to Shahab Mohajer’s identity card, he was a special guard of First Vice President Amrullah Saleh in the previous government, while he was also given a license to transfer weapons in 2017.
According to the US government, Sanaullah Ghafari has been leading the ISIS Khurasan group since May 9.
Amrullah Saleh wrote on his Twitter account after the US State Department statement that Sanaullah Ghafari belonged to the Haqqani Network, but denied that he had been issued an arms supply license during the previous regime and that Amrullah Saleh was a security guard. Couldn’t do that which has been circulating on social media.
In the previous government, Amrullah Saleh was made responsible for the security of Kabul and at the same time Sanaullah Ghaffari was working for his security as well as for ISIS and at the same time he was involved in various attacks in various public places. Numerous attacks are involved.
It is believed that the Taliban have been disassociating themselves from all attacks on mosques and bazaars, but Amrullah Saleh has always insisted that the Taliban are involved, which apparently indicates an alliance between ISIS and the former Afghan government or Amrullah Saleh. Are doing
Analysts believe that handing over responsibility for security in Kabul to Saleh and handing over responsibility for ISIS to his special guard and then escalating attacks on civilian installations in Kabul show a strong link between the previous government and ISIS.
Taliban sources said that Sanaullah still has direct links with the Panjshiri Resistance Group, which is making joint plans and trying to create chaos.
It should be noted that since the Taliban came to power in Kabul in mid-August, ISIS has been involved in several major attacks and dozens of small attacks and bombings.
A few days before the US evacuation, more than 100 people were killed in an ISIS attack on Kabul airport, and on October 9, an explosion during Friday prayers at the Akhundzad mosque in Kunduz, Afghanistan, killed about 100 people.
One week later, on October 15, the militant group targeted Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second-largest city, where a bomb blast at a mosque during Friday prayers killed at least 40 people and injured 70 worshipers.
At least 25 people were killed and dozens wounded in an attack on the Sardar Mohammad Daud Khan Military Hospital in Kabul on November 3, for which ISIS claimed responsibility.
The Taliban operation against ISIS is currently underway in most parts of Afghanistan, while in recent days, several Taliban fighters have been martyred in various ISIS operations. Although Taliban spokesmen have repeatedly said that ISIS is not a threat to us, after a series of operations, people now believe that the war in Afghanistan is not over, but that the Taliban face another challenge.
