Thông tin về ISIS-K, nhóm liên quan đến vụ tấn công Moscow

nhánh nhỏ thuộc Nhà nước Hồi giáo là mối đe dọa lớn đối với khả năng cai trị Afghanistan của Taliban

ISIS-K was founded in 2015 by disaffected members of the Pakistani Taliban, who then embraced a more violent version of Islam. The group saw its ranks cut roughly in half, to about 1,500 to 2,000 fighters, by 2021 from a combination of American airstrikes and Afghan commando raids that killed many of its leaders.

The group got a dramatic second wind soon after the Taliban toppled the Afghan government that year. During the U.S. military withdrawal from the country, ISIS-K carried out a suicide bombing at the international airport in Kabul in August 2021 that killed 13 U.S. troops and as many as 170 civilians.

ISIS is clearly seeking to project its external operations (hoạt động bên ngoài) well beyond its home turf. Counterterrorism officials in Europe say that in recent months they have snuffed out several nascent ISIS-K plots to attack targets (tấn công mục tiêu) there.

In a post on its official Telegram account in January, ISIS-K said it was behind a bombing attack that killed 84 people in Kerman, Iran, during a memorial procession for Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, a revered Iranian commander who was killed in an American drone strike (cuộc tấn công bằng máy bay không người lái) in 2020.

ISIS-K, which has repeatedly threatened Iran over what it says is its polytheism and apostasy (đa thần giáo và bội đạo), has claimed responsibility for several previous attacks there.
