In response queries of Senators, acting Minister of Defense Enayatollah Nazari on Monday reported that the insurgents operating in regions of Afghanistan have labeled themselves as ISIS when in fact they are Taliban fighters.
"Our investigations reveal that Taliban commanders in Afghanistan have changed their physical appearance and are acting as ISIS militants are in fact the Taliban," Nazari told the Senators. In addition, acting Minister of Interior Mohammad Ayoub Salangi said that the Afghan National Police (ANP), despite the lack of efficient weaponry and tolerating massive casualties, is determined to defend the country against threats posed by terrorists.
