An #explosion followed by gunfire (a Complex Attack) reported in #Charikar City, capital of #Parwan Province, today afternoon.
I have conflicting details from an MIED+SAF to storming of a private guesthouse by a group of suspected ISKP members after an explosion.
An IED detonation against a #Taliban vehicle in PD2 of #Charikar City, at 11:00am today, wounded 2 TB fighters.
A Complex Attack took place in the afternoon in PD3 of Charikar City, which is still ongoing. No confirmed details available yet.
While @afintlbrk reported that 4 #Taliban& 3 #ISKP members were killed in today afternoon's incident in #Charikar, another pro-TB source explained the incident as follow:
Following morning explosion against TB vehicle in Charikar City, two suspects were...
...arrested from the incident scene. The arrested would-be ISKP members then provided info to the TB about their hideout in Charikar. Taliban in the afternoon launched an attack against the ISKP hideout, that resulted in an armed clash between them.

Note: No verified info yet.
State-run Bakhtar News Agency:
"IEA security forces carried out a search operation in Charikar the center of Parwan today, after a bomb detonated against a vehicle of IEA. As a result, an ISKP hideout was discovered&some ISKP members were killed&arrested."
While #Taliban said that they destroyed an #ISKP hideout & killed Daesh loyalists in #Charikar City yesterday, locals told @AamajN that civilians were harmed in the Taliban attack.

Several #interpreters left behind in #AFG who worked for the #Netherlands have received letters from the #Taliban ordering them to appear n court. TB said their families could also be prosecuted if an interpreter does not show up.
#Taliban officially rejected #Dutch media report about #prosecution of former Dutch forces #interpreters by IEA in #Afghanistan:
"According to Dutch national television report, the Islamic Emirate's security forces have summoned interpreters who worked ...
... with Dutch forces for prosecution. We reject this report as untrue and this is just a claim and propaganda.
Some people may be trying to leave the country (Afghanistan) and seek asylum with these kind of claims."

A single source unconfirmed report:

17 #Taliban and 4 #ISKP (Daesh) members were killed in a clash between the two groups in #Arghandab District of #Zabul Province. Local sources told @kabulnewstv that the ISKP fighters, equipped with heavy& light weapons, ambushed the Taliban. Image
In mid-2015, #Zabul Province was a second stronghold of #ISKP in AFG after Nangarhar. #IMU leader, Usman Ghazi & his supporters who pledged allegiance to Islamic State fought Taliban till death in Zabul, but the province was cleared of ISKP in end of 2015.…

A thread on #ISKP:
Following takeover of Kabul City by the #Taliban in mid-August, with exception of two attacks against Kabul International #Airport (a deadly suicide attack near the airport gate& a failed rocket attack), the #ISKP activities in #Afghanistan came down to zero...
While #ISKP was sometime topping or used to be on 2nd or 3rd position either after Iraq, Africa or Syria on the attacks& casualties' list in the infographic of Islamic State's Al-Naba weeklies in the previous months; in the recent weeks, it is either at the bottom or disappeared.
There were two propaganda narratives about ISKP activities:
1. Taliban used to call the ISKP a terror wing of the NDS (intelligence), accusing government of supporting the group.
2. The government was saying that the ISKP is a just a new label over the hardliner Taliban or HQN.

A famous newspaper in #Iran, Jamhuri Islami (Islamic Republic), on its front page today printed a bold title: "A Shiite uprising launched in Afghanistan"
The newspaper reports that a new group called "Hashad al-Shiite" (Shiite uprising) has announced its existence in Afghanistan.
"I will command public uprising groups to fight alongside government forces and defend our homeland," Sayed Hassan al-Haydari, the leader of this new movement said in his first speech.
Haydari said that he will defend AFG's unity& sovereignty, with his experience of defending...
...#Shiite holy shrines/places in Iraq and Syria."
This comes as in December 2020, Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif, suggested that Afghan government could utilize members of the #Fatemiyoun militia, recruited& used by Iran to fight in Syria, in the fight against terrorism.

Mufti Noor Wali Mehsud, the leader of Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (#TTP) in his message on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha warned that the "US is ostensibly leaving AFG, but the Pakistani generals still feel the need to make dollars by selling the blood of the oppressed people and... push the #Pakistan into a new war by shifting the war zone from #Afghanistan to their homeland (Pakistan). Pakistani Army Generals want to please their old master (#America) by gaining enmity with the neighboring countries including Afghanistan, #Russia, #China and #Iran.
...Therefore, I appeal to all the people of Pakistan& especially to the Pashtons, to join us in thwarting the possible plans of this anti-Sharia PAK army, which is trading dollars in exchange for our nation. And to play their role in saving this land (Pskistan) that we gained...
