US Moving IS to Afghanistan

Iran’s top military commander says the United States is transferring militants of the self-styled Islamic State terror group to Afghanistan now that the terrorists have lost their strongholds in Iraq and Syria. Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri told Tasnim News Agency on Tuesday that continued tensions in the region would provide Americans with the much-desired pretext to prolong their military presence there, Press TV reported.
A calm region, he said, would obviously mean that the US should withdraw its forces and that regional countries would take charge of their own security. “After witnessing Daesh [IS] and other organized terrorist groups losing their ground in Iraq and Syria, they are now relocating them to Afghanistan,” which has become the scene of fresh explosions, assassinations, and crimes, Baqeri said.
He warned that the US continues to work on such schemes and expressed hope that the Afghan people will join hands to counter these plots.
