Although the regime claims to have crushed the jihadist group and captured or killed dozens of its members, analysts point out that IS still poses the most significant security challenge in Afghanistan.

At least 53 people, mostly schoolgirls and minors, were killed and more than 100 injured in the attack on an educational facility in a predominantly Shiite and Hazara district of Kabul almost two months ago on September 30.

Dedicated Taliban associates have repeatedly been targeted by IS suicide bombers.
