They are being sent to Afghanistan to be trained in attacking using an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). They are trained to carry out attacks targeting security personnel and government officials.
The UN report says the Taliban is training members of both terrorist organizations. They are being trained in Taliban centers in Nangrahar province, Momand Dara, Dur Baba and Sherzad districts. It is believed that about 800 to 1000 terrorists from both organizations are being trained here.
In addition, there are other terrorist organizations in the provinces of Kunar and Nuristan. Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba are also in the region. All of these have received the support and training of the Afghan Taliban.
The Taliban still maintains good ties with the Haqqani Network and al-Qaeda. Taliban attacks on the Afghan government are likely to be unleashed as the peace deal with the United States is realized this year, the report said.
