NSC: IS-K is a Serious Threat to Afghan People

The National Security Council (NSC) has said that the Islamic State (IS)-Khorasan group has posed a serious threat to Afghanistan with the horrific attacks on civilians.

The spokesman of NSC, Kabir Haqmal in a video message has said, “The IS-K poses a serious threat to Afghanistan and the world, and it needs an international consensus.”

Haqmal noted that the IS-K group has carried out dozens of bloody attacks on civilians and created a serious threat.

These statements come after a latest attack by IS-K group in Kabul, in which more than 200 were killed and wounded.

After the attack, President Ashraf Ghani called on the people to besiege against IS-K and other terrorist groups.

The Chief Executive, Abdullah Abdullah on Tuesday during his electoral campaign in Kabul, called the recent IS-K attack horrendous and stressed that it is a despicable group in Afghanistan.
