Post the return of the Taliban to power, in August 2021, various resistance organizations were established. None of them have recorded particular military successes against the fundamentalist Sunnis to date.

Meanwhile, attacks by the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group against Taliban security forces and civilians remain frequent and deadly.

At least 53 people, mostly schoolgirls and minors, were killed and more than 100 injured in the September 30 attack on an educational facility in a district of the capital Kabul home to Shiites and members of the Hazara minority.
