DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:00 A.M.) – New photos have emerged showing the Islamic State purging the Taliban amid a bid to expel the latter group from the eastern Nangarhar province.

In late May, the Islamic State announced it had killed 115 Taliban fighters in the year of 2017 alone. This death toll has likely moved closer to 200 since then due to intensified infighting.

According to Amaq Agency, ISIS militants overran three Taliban-held points in the contested Tora Bora mountain region this weekend, resulting in the capture of a large batch of armaments and grim beheading of rival jihadist combattants:

The infamous Tora Bora military base, once a hideout for none other than Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden himself, remains disputed between ISIS and the Taliban as the two warring parties continue to battle it out without interference from government troops:

Back in early 2015, the Islamic State established its Wilayah Khorasan branch in Afghanistan after a bunch of tribes defected to the self-proclaimed caliphate. Although initially tolerated by the Taliban leadership as a potential partner force against the Afghan Army, the two jihadist factions quickly fell out and began attacking each other.

Afghanistan is supporting & sponsoring IS-Daesh in South & Central Asia with the aid provided by US & Europian Union.

An once one of both takes over, it’ll be time for a live test of FOAB to ‘see’ if it’s better than MOAB.
Nevertheless, Tora-Bora ended being very far from the James Bond’s villain typical underground lair shown by… was it Colin Powell too?
It’s clear that Afghan govt won’t interfere in their infight, thus, maybe to re-balance if one begins to call the shots over the other, the goal being getting rid of all…

Seems I disappointed either a Taleban or an IS fanboy that thumbdowned 😉 I’ll ALWAYS be happy to piss off such rats. Actually, I consider that EU should build a superbomb the size of MOAB (11t) but with the FOAB (7t) technology as its principles makes it equivalent to a 44t bomb, so we’d have the equivalent of a 66t bomb. As HAL teams with Sukhoi for PAK/FA, Dassault should team with HAL to create a stretched version, using 4 M88/Kaveri engines as a 125kN is planed, thus, with 4 of these pretty light/small/EZ-2 maintain ones, thrust will be on… Read more »
