Yesterday& today, in two separate #explosions in #Mazar-e Sharif City of #Balkh Province, several civilians were wounded (&one child killed). Image
@ZabihGhazi wrote yesterday:
"The Taliban say the whole country is safe, but in the east there are explosions&killings.
Today a bomb exploded in Kama district, #Nangarhar&Mullah Imam was shot dead in (Qarghayee) #Laghman." ImageImageImage
In the comments on @ZabihGhazi's post we read the below unauthenticated news about other incidents:
...a young man was beheaded in Chaparhar district of Nangarhar Province...
...a head cut from the body was found in Jalalabad City and it was not clear where the body was located..

1. On 19 September, following weeks of inactivity, #ISKP once again started reporting attacks from #Afghanistan.

That day alone, it claimed seven operations—this is the largest number of attacks reported by #ISKP in a single day in years.
2. This spate of attacks has so far focused on what #IS is calling the ‘apostate #Taliban militia.’

It appears to signal the start of the new, reinvigorated #Afghanistan campaign that #IS first said was on the horizon back in August.
3. Notably, aside from #ISKP’s two attacks on #KIA at the end of August, it had been entirely inactive in #Afghanistan until this week.

The last time it went dark for that long was in June/July 2020.

📡✈️ I wrote an article about how aircraft traffic situational awareness can be improved by capturing aircraft transponder signals, using open source-based software defined radio receivers

Let's consider the Islamic Emirate of #Afghanistan's airspace

The largest cities in Afghanistan are #Kabul, #Herat, #Mazar_e_Sharif, #Kandahar, and #Jalalabad. If any cities in #Afghanistan were to have telecom infrastructure and internet access, it's those five cities. Image

Ennesimo thread sull’#Afghanistan. Stavolta sul serio non mi attendo tante notizie oggi, però conviene lo stesso riportarle in un thread unico. ⤵️
Qualcuno fa notare che una delle cause del caos enorme degli scorsi giorni possa essere stata la decisione affrettata degli americani di abbandonare #Bagram, un aeroporto molto più grande e difendibile di quello di #Kabu, ma anche più lontano da raggiungere dalla città va detto.
Gli americani hanno evacuato fino a ieri circa 1.100 americani con le loro famiglie ed attorno a 2.000 civili afghani che hanno ottenuto il SIV, visto speciale per immigranti dato a coloro che hanno collaborato con le truppe americane durante la missione in Afghanistan.

Catastrophic 72hrs for #Afghanistan, as the #Taliban capture 5 provincial capitals -- taking military bases, airports, emptying prisons etc.

The U.S. (then NATO) withdrawal is clearly an utter disaster, but that ship has sailed -- muted response from #Washington says everything.
#Taliban control in #Afghanistan:

Mid-April: 77 districts:
Early-August: 229 districts

Nearly 50% of provincial capitals are now under #Taliban threat.

(via @LongWarJournal) ImageImage
@LongWarJournal NEW -- Early reports emerging that the #Taliban may have just captured its 6th provincial capital in 4 days: #Aybak, in #Samangan.

1. Most #Afghanistan analysis of late has been preoccupied with the strategic inroads being made by the #Taliban.

Meanwhile, #IS’s affiliate in #Afghanistan, #ISKP, has been experiencing a dramatic resurgence in the country, one that has gone almost entirely under the radar. Image
2. Yesterday, #ISKP reported 3 attacks, killing and injuring 44. The day before, it claimed to have killed/injured 20.

(While devastating, these ops are small compared to the 4 biggest of 2020, in which more people were killed than all other attacks combined since Jan '20.) Image
3. While #ISKP’s attacks in 2021 have so far been of a smaller scale than the biggest ops of last year, they are increasingly being targeted at civilians.

This graph shows how, since Jan '21, #ISKP has been walking back its war on the #ANDSF and focusing more on non-combatants. Image

#Jalalabad #Afghanistan: Pics of the IS-K VBIED driver, inghimasi & support elements that took part in the attack against the main prison, claiming to free "hundreds" of ISIS prisoners, which is credible.

T3 AK/AKM/PK-variant MGs seen. Possible MG-1M, T69/RPG-7 w/ PG-7V/T69-1 ImageImageImage
What is outstanding however is what the mortar support team were armed w/- no less than 3x 82BM-37/Type 53 82mm mortars w/ 150+ (!) mortar bombs.

Both a dramatic failure of Afghan/coalition security forces & indicative of the considerable support/organsational presence of IS-K. Image
This still from a video released by IS with statements by the attackers shows more of their weapons- 8+ PG-7V/T69-1 RPG warheads (Mix of Soviet/Bulgarian and Chinese motors), hundreds of rounds of 7.62x54r, 3x RGD-5-pattern nades, ~18 F-1 pattern nades.
