DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:06 A.M.) – Fierce clashes broke out between the ISIS and the Taliban terrorist groups when the former assaulted the latter’s positions in the Khojiany administration of Afghanistan’s Nanjarhar province about 6 days ago.

ISIS’s assault led to the extremist faction’s capture of several populated regions in the province and the disposition of hundreds of locals escaping the escalating violence. Taliban’s forces launched a counteroffensive two days later and managed to successfully expel ISIS from the Adur and Sur Dagh localities.

Unfortunately for the weary Taliban militants, US-backed Afghan government forces would take advantage of this inter-jihadist violence and launch vicious assaults on Taliban’s positions in the province with the aid of relentless artillery bombardments and airstrikes.

Spawning out of thin air, ISIS has managed to emerge as a dominant force in Nanjarhar province within an impressively short time frame. Noteworthy to mention, ISIS’s Deputy Mahdi defected a few days ago to the Taliban and published a video calling on his “misguided brethren” in ISIS to do the same.
