General: Islamic State group in Afghanistan targets Taliban

“Self-proclaimed Islamic State militants are gaining a foothold and conducting limited military operations in Afghanistan, for now primarily targeting Taliban insurgents and their territory, a defense official said.

The apparent growth of the Islamic State group in Afghanistan is a ‘great concern’ to U.S commanders and could influence plans for ending the 14-year American military mission there next year, the defense official said.”
