TRAC Top Line

Unprecedented Numbers for a Winter Month

This was an extraordinarily active January for both the Taliban(IEA) and Islamic State Khurasan(ISK), with the astounding 472 claims for IEA alone over a traditional non-fighting season in Afghanistan. It appears that the days of "seasonal fighting" where the yearly announcement of the IEA Spring Offensive comes with ominous overtones are over. Even excluding the major attacks made in Kabul over the month, the sheer number of claims for the rest of the nation in January are staggering.  With the announcement that the US now estimates that the Taliban (IEA) is now over 60,000 strong and control over 70% of the nation, may very well be underestimating its real strength.  

6 Different Training Camp Reports Issued in January 2018

Perhaps the total number should not come as such a surprise given the number of training camps and training camp's graduations issued in January 2018.  Over the month 6 different training camps were featured in very different locations throughout the country, a foreshadowing of attacks to come.

TRAC SUMMARY

On 01 January 2017, Ousted Balkh governor Atta Mohammad Noor warned of Islamic State Khurasan (ISK) Movements in Qush Tapa and Darzab (two districts in Jawzjan province) North Afghanistan, however, Balkh itself showed a notable uptick in Taliban attacks in early January 2018.  Reports also that IEA is collecting taxes on the main highways connecting Farah and Nimroz.  It should also be noted that on 12 January 2018, IEA claimed that it had shot 16 US Army soldiers in Spin Ghar district of Nangarhar in a covert operation.  Ghazni Province was hard hit in the second half of January. 

It is also worth noting that IEA is organizing more and more speech competitions for both adults and children over December and January.

**** TRAC EDITORIAL NOTE: Even with well over 2,000 followers the official well-established Taliban Telegram channel mysteriously moved on 28 December 2017, to another account.  As of 05 January 2018, the new channel had only 364 followers.  The tone of the claims reads differently than the old channel and none of the entries are signed by Assad Afghan who has been operating the Telegram channel since its inception.****
