Tullivan labels Islamic affiliates as "fake denominations"

(CNN)The Taliban declared ISIS-K, a member of the Islamic State, a corrupt "sect" with Afghanistan. Forbidden contact.

"We call on the public that the incendiary phenomenon called ISIS-K lacks the false denominations that spread corruption in today's era and in our Islamic State. Any kind of aid is forbidden, or relationships with them, "the Taliban said in a Saturday resolution.

The resolution follows a three-day meeting of religious leaders and elders in Kabul, according to Afghanistan's state news agency Bakthar.

ISIS-K (k stands for Khorasan, the name of a historic region that covers parts of modern Afghanistan and Pakistan) has been active in Afghanistan for the past few years.

According to the Wilson Center, a nonpartisan policy forum, this is a branch of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria).

It is believed that many attacks have been carried out on Afghan civilians, killing thousands since its establishment in 2015.

The Taliban'sresolution stated that Afghanistan follows the Islamic governance system, "armed opposition to this system is considered rebellion and corruption."

He added that "all sorts of opposition to Islamic Shariah and this Islamic rule system, which is in conflict with national interests, is corruption and illegal activity."

The relationship between ISIS-K and its apparent parent group, the Islamic State, is not entirely clear. Affiliates share tactics with ideology, but the depth of organizational and command and control relationships has not been fully established.

US intelligence officials have previously told CNN that members of ISIS-K include "a few veteran jihadists from Syria and other foreign terrorist fighters." ..

According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), its early members included Pakistani militants who emerged in Nangarhar, Afghanistan about 10 years ago, many of whom fled Pakistan. And escaped from other terrorist groups.

Last year's counterterrorism analysts estimated its strength to be around 1,500-2,000, but that number may have increased.

In a Saturday resolution, the Taliban pledged allegiance toMawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada, the supreme leader of the group's recluse, which it called the "leader of the people."
