Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan (ISIS 2.0?) and the latest developments in country’s north do need more media coverage

Several reports came out today about heavy clashes between US/Afghan and Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan forces in country’s north, some of them confirmed by both sides.

Taliban’s official Al-Emarah News:

“KUNDUZ, July 18 – Al-Emarah News said as many 34 U.S-puppet military personnel have been killed in Islamic Emirate’s Mujahideen attacks over the last 24 hours in country’s north.”

“FARYAB, Jul. 18 – A roadside bomb ripped through an enemy tank between Khwaja Usman and Taimor Koprik area of Almar district midday today, killing 4 puppets abroad and leaving 2 others seriously wounded.”

“KUNAR, July 18 – The Islamic Emirate’s Mujahideen shelled an enemy base in Ghaziabad district of Kunar province on Monday, likely to have caused the enemy heavy losses but the precise figure on the death and casualty toll has not been determined.”

ABC News:

“KABUL, Afghanistan — Jul 18, 2017

An Afghan official says that five policemen were killed and another six were wounded in a fierce battle with the Taliban after the insurgents launched a three-pronged push in the northern Baghlan province”

The situation looks quite tense and surely nobody would like to see another “Islamic State-style” army being created.
