ISIS Beheads ‘Spy’ in Nangarhar, Afghanistan

A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State and filmed in Nangarhar, Afghanistan, AKA “Wilayat Khurasan” by ISIS, shows a man accused of spying being beheaded. Wilayat Khurasan is a new province announced by ISIS in January 2015 and includes areas of Afghanistan-Pakistan. Nangarhar is an Afghan province in this disputed region. The video is titled “Healing of the Souls With the Slaughtering of the Spy #3” and was released on October 5, 2015. Nangarhar, Afghanistan is currently the sight of a “turf war” between Islamic State loyalists and the Taliban. However, Reuters reports that “government officials and the U.S.-led training force question whether IS can gain a significant foothold in Afghanistan, given that direct links with the Middle East have not been proven and the Taliban remains dominant.”
