Taliban's War on Terror
Afghanistan - 2022
The fall of Kabul to the Taliban saw Afghanistan stripped of democracy. On top of this political upheaval, just 11 days after the Taliban took Afghanistan's capital, Islamic State launched the first of several attacks in the country. These attacks have killed hundreds of civilians, and shattered any hope of a lasting peace or stability in Afghanistan. Now, Norwegian Paul Refsdal reports, the Taliban is waging their own War on Terror in the Eastern province of Nangarhar - the birthplace of the Afghan branch of the Islamic State. Here, the violence rarely grabs international headlines, but confrontations between the Taliban security forces and the Islamic State are a nearly daily occurrence.
