There have been fears of ISIS making inroads in Afghanistan since U.S.-led NATO forces ended their combat mission late last year, after 13 years of fighting insurgents.The Middle Eastern group has never formally acknowledged a presence in Afghanistan and most self-styled ISIS insurgents in the country are believed to be Taliban turncoats rebranding themselves to appear a more lethal force.Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has repeatedly raised fears that ISIS – notorious for their brutal reign of terror in Syria and Iraq – are making steady inroads into Afghanistan, which is already in the grip of a fierce Taliban insurgency.
