However, attacks by the Islamic State terror group have increased since the Taliban took over Afghanistan in mid-August. In such a situation, the possibility of further deepening of the conflict between the two extremist groups has increased. IS dominates the eastern province of Nangarhar and considers the Taliban an enemy. It has claimed several attacks against him, including several murders in the provincial capital Jalalabad.
