ISIS has been forced to relocate its propaganda operation from Iraq and Syria to Afghanistan following the collapse of its so-called CaliphateA number of Algerian and French nationals entered the largely ISIS-controlled district of Darzab in northern Jowzjan province in November, said district governor Baaz Mohammad Dawar.At least two women were among the arrivals, who were travelling with a translator from Tajikistan as well as Chechens and Uzbeks, Dawar added.European and Afghan security sources in Kabul confirmed Dawar's claim that French citizens were among the fighters.Three of the Algerians seen in Darzab are believed to have been in Syria and Iraq, Dawar said.When it first emerged in 2015, IS-KP overran large parts of eastern Nangarhar and Kunar provinces.The jihadists have since spread north, including in Jowzjan on the border with Uzbekistan, and carried out multiple devastating attacks in the capital Kabul.Mohammad Raza Ghafoori, the Jowzjan provincial governor's spokesman, said French-speaking Caucasian men and women had been seen training IS-KP fighters in Darzab.He cited reports saying that around 50 children, some as young as 10, have also been recruited by the fighters.
