    There is no such group in Afghanistan by the name of daesh. They are thieves and robbers who claim to be daesh. Taliban said once they came to power they will finish this group from their roots.

    It was a joint operation by ISIS and Afghan government to convince USA not to leave Afghanistan which would dry up dollar supply to Kabul corrupt elite.
    Don't believe me than listen to the wording of narrator, he was trying to give same message "ISIS is in Afghanistan so don't plz leave us"
